Topic for this class: Habitats

Class description: Do you know what habitat you're a part of? For all critters, even us humans, where we choose to live says a lot about what we need to thrive. Students observe the creatures that have chosen to make the local park their habitat, and how they've adapted to live there. Come think like an animal and maybe you'll discover one hiding in plain sight!

About City Nature Explorers classes: Your child can join the Environmental Education team to learn local ecology through sensory activities, science investigations, games, and exploration. Our trained outdoor educators will immerse your child in experiential learning with lessons that line up with common science units. Classes are active, social, engaging, and fun!

A perfect option for students who are homeschooled or on a school break! Classes are 100% outdoors at a local park or natural area and take place rain or shine! Join us for just this one class—or sign up for them all!

Cost for each class: $21/participant (includes instructor time, materials, and supplies)
