Bring science to life and immerse your students in the natural world! Our field trips and classroom programs offer you the unique opportunity to inspire your students’ minds and engage their senses. Observation is all about seeing, hearing, touching and smelling and that’s what makes our programs exciting and memorable for both kids and educators.

Nothing beats a trip to the Nature Center, including a tour of the nature preserve, a visit to our interactive museum and up-close encounters with our resident animals. Students come away full of inspiration and ideas! However, if you’re unable to make the trip here, let us come to you!

If you are a homeschool or scout group of 18 people or less, please check out our Additional Educational programs here.
