Update: Due to Covid-19, we are unable to offer Offsite Programs at this time.
We come to your school! We have a variety of programs for all ages listed on this page. Offsite programs are available Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Our in person instruction looks a little different during a pandemic. We are limited numbers of participants, we are teaching outside only, and are requiring a day-of waiver and health screening for each participant. Please contact the nature center directly to discuss how we can work with you to create a meaningful environmental education experience during the 2020-2021 school year. Please note: All participants and teaching staff are asked to remain masked during the program.
