EcoKids Nature School
We offer a year-round program series for children ages 3 and up (including homeschoolers) called EcoKids, which is designed to connect the children with the natural world. This family program is for children and their caregivers, and uses nature study, exploration, stories, and crafts to encourage an environmental sensibility and sense of wonder. Our fall and spring series occur outdoors at camp, and our winter series is held indoors in our administrative offices. Each class includes a hike on our trails weather-permitting.
Spring, fall, and winter series are each 6-8 weeks long, and families register for the season (no drop-ins). Please email to inquire about dates, registration, and pricing.
