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 in topics ranging from weather, to astronomy, to wilderness survival and so much more.

Our Nature Force programs are designed to teach science while encouraging kids to get outside and explore the natural world around them.

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.
