Welcome to Green Spiral Tours,

an eco- adventure school

designed to connect

families and nature,

and people with their planet,

through free and affordable field trips

throughout the Saint Louis region.

Field trips spiral the calendar,

 and are one-of-a-kind,

off-the-beaten track adventures.

Some trips are offered for free,

but typically a $10 / family donation

is requested as a tip

for the field trip leader.

Founded by nature teacher

Jessie Hoagland in 2008,

Green Spiral Tours offers a way

to supercharge your learning

about all things green in Saint Louis,

in the company of curious

and like-minded others.



Feb 2016

marks the beginning of

Year Seven

for Green Spiral Tours,

and while families remain the central focus,

everyone is welcome

on any adventure at any time,

and we have plenty of grandparents, nannies,

architects, landscapers

and yoga teachers joining

many field trips.




To find out about the next field trip,

join the Green Spiral invitation list

by submitting the form below.

Emails come out about once per month,

or when inspiration strikes.




The emails alone

are fun and educational to read;

they give you the bigger picture,

while the field trips bring

the bigger picture down to practice.



Lots of people are inspired

to follow along

with their own adventures

at their own pace

and on their own schedules.

And because “less is more,”

keep a sharp eye out

for Green Spiral emails,

and know that your email address

will never be sold or shared.

That’s pretty much it;

there is no catch.
