4 weeks of classes for ages 5-14

Looking for a way to keep your children active and entertained after their school day? Need a way to add some extra activities to their Homeschool Curriculum? SLNC’s Afterschool 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 4 weeks.

The program is a drop-off program run by SLNC’s 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.

**UPDATE: Effective Monday, 2/28/2022, masking in County buildings is optional for all employees and visitors regardless of vaccination status.**
