Nature Programs

 


Adult Nature Programs
From classes on astronomy and gardening tips to nature center tours, adult nature programs offer more in depth information about a wide range of science themes, topics of concern and sustainable practices. Collaborative programs with research facilities and environmentally-based organizations, like The Conservation Foundation and the Master Gardeners, provide expert information and advice.

Youth Nature Programs
Does your child love butterflies, or bats, or catching critters from the river? These one-time, one-topic programs offer children the chance to investigate and explore nature under the guidance of a knowledgeable naturalist and with children who share their interests. Our goal is to educate and excite young minds while helping them develop a love of nature.

Family Nature Programs
Whether visiting the nature center at night or camping under the stars, these family programs are designed for people of all ages to experience nature together.

Nature Camps
Nature Camps are a great way for your child to take part in a hands-on outdoor adventure during spring, summer and winter break. Camps emphasize outdoor exploration and investigation. Activities include games, art, science experiments, hikes, stories and more. Held during the weekday, camps range from 2-4 days in length and are offered for specific age groups.
