More information

Head Naturalist and Educator Eric Duran is willing to work with your homeschool group to offer programs that meet your science curriculum needs in specific content areas relating to the biological sciences. Classes will include a mix of classroom time, outside exploration, live animal time, art craft, and nature games.

These programs are offered as one-off, pre-scheduled classes upon request by homeschool groups. To schedule a program, you need to already have a group together, or be willing to put one together that meets the program minimum. Pre-registration and upfront payment by the group (with 1 lead parent) is required. The coordinating parent will book the date and give us the number of students attending, and then we will issue them an invoice for the total amount that they will pay in full. It will be up to that parent how they collect payment from the other families.
