American Hiking Society group

The nationally recognized Touch of Nature Environmental Education program isn't just for campers and children. University groups and the community can also take part in and benefit from the programs we offer. We work with a number of different colleges and universities for classroom and student organization support at both the undergraduate and graduate level. We serve Greek organizations, student alumni organizations, University Housing, cultural groups, outdoor adventure groups and orientation programs, just to name a few.

Thanks to the Green Fund, Touch of Nature is able to offer a FREE trail stewardship program, which includes transportation, to SIU organizations!
