Meet these llamas, fascinating pack animals, each with their own “personality.” Guided walks follow a 2-mile paved trail along the Forest Festival and Forest Discovery Trail. Presented by Challenge Adventures.

Walks begin at 11:00 a.m. & 2:00 p.m.

Llamas and Challenge Adventures:

Begun in 1989, Challenge Adventures creates adventures for youth and organizations focusing on the environment, youth therapy and empowerment. 

Why llamas? “Llamas are gentle animals with a strong social structure. Each llama has a unique role in the herd and the herd itself provides a vivid living metaphor that CA therapists use to teach lessons about cooperation and teamwork. The llama also provides a projective device… participants frequently project their own identity, wishes and motivations onto their llama.” On their website you can read the bios of each llama.

More info:

During this walk learn about special traits llamas have for the trail. You have the chance to take turns leading a llama.  Your lunch & snacks are carried for you while ice tea is provided. Please pack your lunch. 

Event entrance is $5.00 for ages 16 and up, free for youth. Includes entrance to the site’s trails, exhibits, gift shop, and any special tours offered that day.
