Fern Hollow Homeschool Programming for 2021-22


Our Homeschool Programs are designed to teach science with a hands-on approach while
encouraging kids to get outside and explore nature. Families are encouraged to bring
a picnic or a snack to enjoy after the program and then explore on your own!
**Face coverings are optional during most outdoor activities, but required inside.**
