Educational Programs

The park naturalists offer children and adults of all ages an opportunity to experience the natural world first hand.  Our programs combine hands-on activities with guided discovery.  This fosters a better connection, allowing the lesson to stay with the student long after they have left the park.  We have curriculum based programs for schools, scout programs, and public programs offered throughout the year.  These range from pond ecology and mammal studies to prehistoric Native American life and basic survival skills.  Please follow the links below for more detailed information:
