This nonprofit is an environmental education center, which means you'll find nature trails, along with family and school programs like an annual square dance and a BBQ. Kids will love exploring the amazing landscape via after-school programs like Nature Club (ages 3–4) and Junior Nature Kids (ages 5–8), where they’ll get an up close encounter with nature once per week. Sessions for preschoolers might involve children’s books, crafts, games, nature walks and even interact with live animals. The older set will dig more into scientific and ecological topics through hands-on demos and discussion with the instructors. After a snack and a good dose of fresh air, they’ll be ready to head back to their urban habitat. All ages.
