Programs For Schools, Libraries, and Other Organizations: At Naturalist Endeavors we go well beyond the norm in providing extraordinarily high quality educational experiences to people of all ages. At Naturalist Endeavors our programs are focused on science and history education. To meet the science needs of classroom teachers at the various grade levels we incorporated the current NGSS K-12 Standards. In designing and developing of our history and social studies programs we utilized the most recent K-12 Social Studies Standards for Michigan. At Naturalist Endeavors we work at keeping updated so that we can meet the current needs of teachers. Our objective is to teach, to stimulate the mind, and to create an enthusiasm for science, nature & history.
Quality: All programs are presented by Randy Baker, a professional university trained biologist and naturalist. In addition to 12 years of university training our naturalist also has experience as a classroom teacher, an author of scientific articles, and as a professional wildlife guide. Randy has been providing programs for schools and other organizations for over 20 years. Experience and professionalism is what Naturalist Endeavors brings to each and every program or tour.
Tours: In addition to providing educational programs Naturalist Endeavors offers Nature Focused Tours to Kenya, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Galapagos Islands and throughout the United States. These tours concentrate on observing wildlife, birds, and ecosystems. If we are not currently offering a tour to Kenya, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands or some location within the United States it is often possible to develop a Custom Tour for you and your family or for your organized group. These tours typically require a minimum of 4 or more people in order for the tour to be developed for you.
Extraordinary Efforts are made to incorporate newly made discoveries into each and every program and tour. Each year research is conducted to gather new information and to insure that the most up to date and accurate information is utilized in the delivery of our programs and tours.
