Junior Naturalists (NEW PROGRAM!) – a drop off program for kids 11 to 14 years old

The new Junior Naturalist program is designed for budding scientists interested in the fields of biology, ecology and field research. In this four-part program, we will explore real research techniques that scientists use to observe and study lake and wetland environments.
This hands-on, active class will get students outdoors, collecting data and observing animals in their natural habitats. It’s a perfect fit for young people looking to explore a career in science.

Due to COVID-19 and lowered staffing levels we are currently (Sept 2020) unable to offer Junior Naturalists.
