This is a drop-off program, though parents and siblings are welcome to visit the nature center and trails during class time with presentation of a valid membership card or payment of admission. While the program is perfect for homeschoolers, it is open to any child.

Classes typically fill well in advance so plan accordingly. Due to the popularity of the program, we cannot hold spots without payment. Classes will be canceled if minimum enrollment is not met.
