Registration and Group Size
All groups are limited to six participants this year. Therefore, in order to offer access to people applying for scholarships, everyone above our first four enrolled participants will be put on a waitlist for one week after our early bird and scholarship application deadline. After this point, we will notify scholarship applicants and people on waitlist whether you can register. We will open up a second group for each age group if we reach 6 people on the waiting list above the first six. Thank you for your patience as we navigate re-opening our “doors” in the time of COVID-19.
Specific public park locations will be sent to you before the group begins.
Locations are dependent on local park availability as some rules and regulations have changed due to COVID-19.
First week of programs will be week of February 1, 2021 and run consecutively until early May. Day of week is listed above and exact dates will be sent upon registration.
All wildflower circles include:
- 10 after school gatherings from 4-6:30pm* – reduced by 30 mins if on Zoom
- 2 weekend gatherings from 10am-2pm
- 1 caregiver-only gathering
- 1 one-on-one caregiver or youth meeting with guide
*If everyone enrolled would like to meet earlier in the day this will be determined once enrolled. GP schedules were made to accommodate school schedules, but given that many are not attending physical schools, there may be flexibility to meet earlier in the day.

Health and Safety Precautions
In response to COVID-19, all fall circles will have a ratio 6 participants with one guide, with a maximum ratio of 8 participants to one guide. We will no longer have shared meals or snacks. While all programs take place outdoors, participants and staff will comply with updated CDC recommendations for health and safety. (Read our complete COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan.) Each program will have 2 extra sessions scheduled in both fall and spring semesters, as some cancellations will likely be necessary due to rain, wildfire smoke, COVID-19, or other unforeseen circumstances. If it becomes unsafe to meet outdoors, programming will move temporarily online, program time will be reduced by 30 mins, and staff will provide meaningful and connective content through Zoom.
