Nature Adventure

Nature AdventuresTM classes are now open for registration!


All Nature AdventuresTM classes will be held at the Museum campus.  Participants may explore up to 12 themed stations each day!  Each week, an experienced Museum instructor will engage children in a variety of science experiments, activities and crafts connected to the central theme.  Class time will include an introduction to the activities and a read-aloud (Early Learners, After School and Homeschool groups) or circle time/read-aloud for the Tykes group.  Occasional off-site field trips may include the Sea Center, tide pools, neighboring watersheds, butterfly grove, and more!
