School programs work together with the CORE, NGSS and Connecticut Science Curriculum Standards to meet goals and expectations for the classroom. Classes are offered here as well as at schools. Our certified staff travels to schools across Connecticut to deliver programming in the classroom as well as parks and other sites.
 
School ProgramThe young naturalist homeschool program gives a chance for students to explore the outdoors and participate in cooperative games and activities. The classes are split into three focuses including environmental studies, teambuilding, and indigenous studies.
*Note: Our homeschool program is currently on hold as we restructure our offerings.
