True Nature - Class Schedule

True Nature: Nature Exploration and Mentoring for children (age 3 - 12) and their grown-up.
All classes are 3 hours long. This program was designed for one adult in the child’s life (parent/relative/nanny/friend) to participate and be the at-home mentor. See description for what's expected of at-home mentors. We also designed this program to be a multi-season experience. Families are encouraged to register for fall, winter, and spring sessions.
