The school pickup plan will depend on who wants to sign up. Please email Zac at and let us know if you’re interested.

We will pick up children at some schools, and kids from other schools can be delivered to us. The day ends at 6 p.m. at Upper City Park in Iowa City. If we don’t do a pick-up at your child’s school, you can bring your child to Taproot by arrangement.

Destinations and activities will depend on the weather and other variables, but will always include playing, exploring, visiting, learning, and growing in an atmosphere of friendship and nature.
