Field trips spiral the calendar,

 and are one-of-a-kind,

off-the-beaten track adventures

in the Greater Saint Louis area.

Typically a $10 / family donation

is requested as a tip

for the trip leader.

Year Eight

for Green Spiral Tours,

everyone is welcome

The emails are fun and educational —

they give you the bigger picture,

while the field trips bring

big ideas

down to practice.



Lots of people are inspired

to follow along

at their own pace,

and on their own schedule,

based on the newsletter.
