Employee Program Itinerary

Friday

After a festive BBQ dinner there will be an orientation outlining the itinerary for the trip. Afterwards, the employees will gather at a vista point with a breathtaking view of the Sierra Nevada to discuss the outcomes of their individual WorkTraits analysis. They will also participate in the “Friendship Circle”, an interactive activity designed to facilitate group interaction.

Saturday

The National Park Service welcomes the employees. Safety guidelines are presented. The group is divided into teams to work on various projects. Your employees will play a vital role in restoring critical habitats in the parks. Sample projects include planting trees, re-vegetation of impacted park habitat, removing non-native flora, gathering seeds of endangered species and working in park nurseries. At lunch the teams regroup to meet with a team building facilitator to discuss their team dynamics during their work time. After dinner, the employees will hike to a beautiful meadow to review their “discoveries” and discuss how to apply those “discoveries” in their workplace. When they return, dessert will be served and various interactive games will be presented to further enhance their relationships and team building experience.

Sunday

On their last day in the park, the volunteers will participate in a Farewell Ceremony. They will then have the opportunity to stroll through spectacular groves of giant sequoias, hike around meadows teaming with wildflowers, explore Crystal Cave or take a nature walk to other points of interest in the park. The program concludes at 2:00PM, however, volunteers are welcome to stay and enjoy the rest of the day in the park.

Testimonials

“There is something to do for everyone. I couldn’t climb up and down the hill so I found a job cutting wire and preparing the chain link fence to protect the oak seedlings from grazing deer and elk. I have lots of blisters and its hard work, but it’s not every day that you get to be a part of helping nature. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This is our vacation this year for the two of us. It’s been wonderful. I think it is great that our company made this possible for us.”
–Chris H.

“Its been a great time planting these trees with a lot of other employees. I never spend time with these people outside of work. It’s great getting together and doing something worthwhile, something that will last and something that is good for the environment. It’s been fun having my wife and son here with me and seeing them taking part in this important project.”
— David W.

“Its been a lot of hard work and sweat … and very worthwhile. It’s been great working with the employees and getting to know them better. This means a lot to me, to be out here doing something for the next generation. I appreciate the opportunity to work with The Nature Corps and that our employer has made it possible for me to come out here and be a part of this project. It’s been a time that has been very meaningful for my son and I.”
