Nature School

Nature School (previously the Homeschool Program) is an 10-week weekday program for children ages 5-12. 

Children walking along a path through tall grass. Nature School is an ten-week immersive weekday nature program designed for children ages 5 to 12. Learn about the wild creatures of the valley by exploring their habitats, discover wild edibles and make creations out of clay.

Each session will include games inspired by nature, stewardship activities and the use of simple hand tools. By telling the industrial and natural stories of the landscape of the city, we will learn new ways to integrate our human lives into the natural world.
