We have daily themes related to wetlands, wildlife, ecosystems and processes.  Learn in a fun and supportive environment!



2020 Jr Naturalist Program Schedule

We will be running the Jr Naturalist Program in the summer of 2020!


We have been working hard to create a COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan as well as specific policies for the Jr Naturalist program. We want to make sure that all visitors, program participants and staff feel safe and comfortable when onsite with us.


We will be offering one camp a week with a maximum of 10 kids. We feel that this will allow us to incorporate our health and safety policies and provide the best and safest experience for the kids. Our main focus is on getting the kids outside (as it usually is), which, according to health authorities, is a low risk activity in regards to the spread of COVID-19.
