Nature Explorers Homeschool

Nature Explorers Homeschool continues this spring with our interactive, outdoor program that consists of multiple sessions. Students may sign up a la carte for any of these sessions. Pre-registration is required. There is a maximum number allowed for each week, so sign up early!

Help broaden the way your children think about the environment. Our goal is to expand current knowledge while giving them the tools to interpret nature and make connections to the physical world around them. Please read on for more details and descriptions of the different topics that will be covered.
