As a new service to the community, we are offering full-day Nature Center Adventures on Monday holidays. We know everyone doesn’t get the day off; and if the kids have a holiday from school it should be fun and memorable. The programs will be held outdoors as much as possible, dress accordingly. Grades 3rd-5th have the opportunity of doing animal care training and becoming part of our Youth Naturalist program. All participants will take part in animal care, nature learning, scavenger hunts; learning through creating, and games. Hours for this program are the same as the school, 7:45am – 2:45pm, with options to lengthen if needed. Price per day is $50.00 with a reduction of $40.00 per child if multiple children are enrolled. These programs include all of the materials, but none of the food (please send a packed lunch with your child). The ratio of instructor to participants will never be greater than 1:12, 24 students maximum. Youth Naturalist interns will be present to support animal care training and interactions as well as to facilitate team games.
IF WE DO NOT GET A MINIMUM OF 8 PARTICIPANTS, THE PROGRAM WILL BE CANCELLED AND YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED PRIOR TO THE PROGRAM DATE.
