Ijams Announces New Partnership!

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Posted by admin,

For over 100 years, the Ijams property has been a place where children could truly connect with nature. From the four Ijams daughters in the early 1900s through to the hundreds of girl scouts we teach every year, getting girls outdoors has been an important part of our history. In keeping with this century-long tradition, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with the teach of Girls Outside.

The new programs will be known as Girls Outside with Ijams, and will offer all-girl hikes that encourage girls to explore the outdoors through hiking, promoting physical activity, independence and self-esteem. This new partnership allows us to provide girls in our local community with more exciting opportunities to spend time in nature.

Please check our calendar of events for upcoming hike dates, or call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110 for registration and information. We hope to see you soon!

Girls Outside has had many adventures at Ijams Nature Center before -- look for more adventures WITH Ijams Nature Center coming soon!
