Outreach Programs

Can't bring your group to the Nature Center?  Have the Nature Center come to you!

The Nature Discovery Center offers an outreach program that will allow children to learn about nature without having to go anywhere. These programs are suitable for the classroom or for a library, and last about one hour.  Cost: $100 to $150 depending on location. There is a $40 charge for each additional, same-day program.
