Schedule a Program

Nature Center programs are FREE and include live animal ambassadors and hands-on artifacts when possible. Some fees may be required for scout programs.

We do programs for adults and children of all ages from schools, community groups, assisted living facilities, and more. However, programs are limited to groups of 10 or more. You can book a program with us once each semester.
