“This year, Homeschoolers’ Day is focused on forests,” says John Pollpeter, a Naturalist at Nature Station. “Homeschoolers will be able to get an up-close look at forest animals, investigate a forest ecosystem, complete educational crafts, work on a treetop scavenger hunt, and much more. Our ongoing programs and activities will incorporate concepts of science, English, and math into interactive lessons on the importance of forests. Your homeschooler will have a fun and exciting day learning about this precious resource.”
During the entire month, students can also pick up a Nature Discovery self-guided activity book at the Nature Station and complete activities to earn an official Nature Discovery patch and certificate. Available daily from 10 am-5 pm.
