Child's hands potting a seedling Offered for a diversity of learners, from young explorers to budding enthusiasts, our programs have been expertly designed to educate, inspire and enrich. Most importantly, they are intended to strengthen the connections each of us has with the natural world.

Our classes for kids and families have been designed for children and adults to experience together. Instructors strive to engage children in age-appropriate activities, while providing adults examples of ways to learn about the natural world at home.
