Join us for a hands-on experience in environmental science at Fern Hollow Nature Center!

We will spend the year learning and growing our curiosity for the world around us. In this program designed for homeschooled students ages 5-9, students will have the opportunity to learn field techniques and apply environmental topics to real-world concepts.

There is so much to discover! Most programs will take place at Fern Hollow Nature Center and will run from September to June.  An email will be sent in advance of offsite programs that require parents transportation.
