Science through Nature (previously Homeschool Science) is an educational program for students who want to explore the sciences through nature-based, hands-on activities.

What does it mean to be a scientist? Each month, students will discover how to be just like a scientist by learning about the natural world! This exciting program is designed to supplement remote learning or home school education through observation, exploration, and investigation, partnered with fun, interactive hands-on activities and a naturalist-guided hike!

This year, students will learn about the “Ologies” or “the study of.” Each session will focus on a different “Ology” and how it can be applied to the diverse ecosystem of plant and animal life within the Forest.

THE “OLOGIES” SERIES – JANUARY 11: MAMMOLOGY
The Forest is home to different types of mammals, and they are all unique in their own way. We will learn what defines a mammal and how they compare to other animals in the forest.

Recommended for students 2nd through 4th grade. Maximum of 15 students per session. Pre-registration required.
