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!
