Memorable experiences for students to learn and thrive in nature
Knowledgeable staff to help you design the perfect program for your class
Beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces to accommodate a range of ages and groups
Grades K-2, 4-5
From teeth to tails and hibernation to migration, observe the attributes of a variety of native wildlife to discover how adaptations allow them to survive and thrive.
Discover the world of invertebrates from egg to adult, and uncover the value of a worm as we search the forest floor for nature's less-celebrated species.
In this program, F.B.I. can only stand for one thing: Fungus, Bacteria, and Invertebrates! Students will investigate a "crime scene" to determine the culprits in the case of decomposition.
Grades K-1, 3
Peel away the petals to unvocer the inside scoop on flowering plants during a flower dissection. Then investigate the way flowers bring more than just color into our world.
When it comes to geology, the answers aren't always crystal clear. Compare properties of rocks and discover the geologic processes that create metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks.
Scaly and Slimy
Grades K-2, 4
Get a close look at the adaptations that set reptiles and amphibians apart, then search high and low for a close encounter of a scaly (or slimy) kind!
Grades K, 2, 4-5
Slosh along a stream bank, net a crayfish, and observe the quality of our waterways by studying the indicator species of aquatic ecosystems.
Grades 1, 3-4
Soil can tell the story of a place's past, while nourishing the lives of plants and animals in the present. Dig into soil types, till through its components, and unearth some of the creatures that reside there.
Examine the systems that help trees grow and investigate the anatomy of a tree in this hands-on program that shines light on how tremendous trees can really be.
Grades K, 2, 5
Use meteorological tools to measure weather conditions, decode weather data, and determine how weather plays a role in our daily lives.
Grades K-2, 4-5
Go beyond terrific turkeys, slithering snakes, and fantastic foxes. Compare diets and consider wildlife adaptations while studying skins and skulls. Outside we'll explore how these creatures connect with their habitat.
World of Water
Grades 2-3, 5
Our planet is covered in water, yet less than 1% of that water is available for human consumption. Dive deep into the role water plays in our lives and the ways it nourishes the greater ecoystem.
