K-12 Programs

We know that it can be challenging to fit a full day field trip into your schedule, so we offer hands-on  programs that translate to your K-5th classroom. Our knowledgeable staff will bring fun, engaging, science-based programs into your classroom to complement your curriculum. Each program is designed to help you meet the Grade Level Content Expectations. Class visits can also be a great way to follow-up on your field trip to our Learning Center, as we help them process, reflect, and build upon the content they learned through our outdoor experience.

Choose from one of the program topics below, or call us to create a special lesson for your class:

  • Three Hoots for Owls (one hour)
  • Play Dough Rocks! (one hour)
  • Awesome Aquatic Insects (one hour)
  • Investigating Erosion (two hours)
