Natural Outdoor Classroom
The first certified Nature Play area in Pennsylvania
Inspired by the Arbor Day Foundations “Nature Explore” program (www.arborday.org/explore), Fern Hollow's Natural Outdoor Classroom located in our White Pine Forest was constructed in the fall of 2009 and spring 2010. We were certified by the Arbor Day Foundation and Dimensional Educational Research Foundation in the fall of 2010.
Nature Play Area- includes a discovery area, challenge area, building area, creative play area, and much more.
Community Garden- The garden area is fenced and locked from the general public and wildlife and only used for programs and play dates. The area also features numerous berry bushes!
Apiary- the center has partnered with Burgh Bees to start our own hive to educate the community on the importance of bees. The area is fenced and a safe distance from the Nature Play Area and garden.
