Wildlife Workshops

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person Wildlife Workshop sessions are scheduled to return for Fall 2021 with modifications in place:

-All sessions are drop-off only.  

-Masks are required of all participants for the duration of the program.

-Class capacity is reduced to assist with social distancing efforts.  

-Please see your reminder email, or contact us, for the most current information, as COVID-19 parameters must remain fluid and will be adjusted as necessary based on guidance from the CDC, ISDH, and TCHD.

Get ready for some hands-on, brains-on fun!  Kids will explore wildlife and nature topics through a variety of engaging activities, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) explorations, model-making, behind-the-scenes excursions, and encounters with several live animals each session.  With this much excitement, don’t be surprised if your child is too busy having fun and making friends to notice how much they’ve learned! This program is for ages 8 - 11 years old (sorry, no exceptions).
