It's a great way for children, teens, families, and adults, to learn about nature together.
Join Environmental Education in a new inter-generational program - ecology lessons in different natural areas! Children, teens, and adults learn ecology firsthand through hiking, investigation, educational games and experiential activities. Each class meets at a different natural area and teaches a different nature concept. Participants will travel in groups of 10-15 people, led by a trained naturalist from PP&R Environmental Education. Lesson topics include native plants, beavers, forests, water insects, frogs, and more! See our site and topic schedule for all the details!
Help us spread the word!! In the left-hand column you'll see flyers for each individual class. Click on the link of the park you'd like to promote. You'll then see a printable PDF document with all the information about the class. Print and hang on a bulletin board at your favorite coffee shop, community organization, school, etc.
Classes are Saturday mornings once a month (sites & topics & times vary so check the schedule!) Participants do not have to attend every class - each class has its own activity number. Sign up for one class, or sign up for them all!
All classes are intergenerational and are designed so children (5+ yrs), teens and adults can learn ecology together. (Youth under 14 yrs must register with an adult.) Adults are also welcome to come on their own, but should be aware that children & youth might be present too!
Each week meets at a new spot!
Please note the meeting spot for each class listed in the online description.
