In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.

    Homeschool Days


Home school days allow individual home school students to attend preselected programs. Only students of the grade-equivalent age for the programs offered will be registered.

Who’s Whoo?

Thursday, November 21, 2019
Time: 1:00-2:30
Grades K-5
Program # 391
Cost: $6
A naturalist will lead an interactive discussion of owl adaptations. While listening to eerie owl calls, children will become forensic scientists and dissect their own owl pellet. Students will use magnifying glasses to see the differences between goose feathers and owl feathers. To further understand the food chain, students will play games to help learn about animal strategies of survival.

Registration deadline is November 14, 2019
