Education for Youth

After School Nature Explorers Club

The After School Nature Explorers Club is designed for school-age children, 6-12 years old, who are interested in investigating the great outdoors! Each session, we'll explore the natural world, focusing on our own native habitats and wildlife. We’ll go on nature hikes, dip-net in the ponds, meet our live animals, and practice outdoor skills such as tracking, foraging, building shelters, telling stories, playing games, and much more. Our adventures will be crafted from the curiosities of the children, allowing them to develop a sense of place while exploring the landscape through play. Hope you can join us for the fun!
