We are in the process of creating a new format for our yearly homeschool program. Details will be announced by mid-August!
Small Groups wanting to arrange a visit:
Are you a small group of adults or children -- scouts, camps or homeschool groups -- looking to visit our facility? There are many choices, depending on
For a self-guided visit:
You must make a reservation if your group is larger than 20 people -- go to self-guided visits. Alternatively, you can write [email protected] or call 694-2108. NOTE: Even if your group is under 20, it is still a good idea to contact us to make sure your visit does not coincide with other groups or special events. We'd help you find a time when you can enjoy our trails at a less busy time!
For a naturalist-guided visit:
If you're a group wanting a guided program, there are several choices in length and program topics.
The cost of the standard 2-hr guided program is $6/student (minimum of $60). We also offer a $40 winter special: a 1-hr program
for groups with 10 or fewer children (available only October 15 - April 15; doesn't include snowshoeing). To make a reservation, go to the online reservation for guided visits. Alternatively, you can write [email protected] or call 694-2108.
Looking for classes for your homeschooled child(ren):
We offer a Homeschool Series for K-6th, September through May. The format is very flexible, allowing families to choose individual class sessions.
For questions and more details, see or contact
[email protected]. To register for individual classes or homeschool series, go to Public Programs and select
Workshops, or click here.
Older students might be interested in many of the public programs we offer, such as presentations on natural
history and science topics, Astronomy Series, Armchair Travel, etc. Specifically
for teens, we offer periodic workshops on climate change, outdoor survival skills, and more.
