Looking for a way to keep your children active and entertained after their virtual school day? Our After School Nature Classes aim to allow kids to socialize in a safe way while exploring the outdoors (and using that pent up energy that’s been building up all day!).  Each session lasts for 6 weeks.

The program is a drop-off program run by our environmental educators.  We encourage parents to minimize interactions with the class in order to reduce distractions.  Parents are not required to stay on site, but are welcome to hike the trails on their own during this time.

Classes will run from 3:00pm-5:00pm
