Nature Plus Program

Grades 1-3


This in-depth interactive program is perfect for classes ready to take the step from the science textbooks into nature. An extended hike through the preserve allows students time to focus on their surroundings and get into deeper discussions, and the hands-on science activities provide exposure to specific curriculum themes. The program also includes a personal encounter with one of our resident animals.
