This school year, whether you’re homeschooling or learning remotely, consider joining the Harris Center on the third Tuesday of each month for outside-only nature experiences, guided by our talented teacher-naturalists. Learn how to use tools and your own curiosity to discover the wild secrets of where you live! Sharpen your observation skills, think scientifically, draw what you see, write what you feel, and open your senses to all that you can learn about this place we call home.

In December we’ll turn our gaze toward evergreensusing field guides, twig samples, and magnifiers, we’ll study cones, search for shrubs, and learn to tell a pine from a hemlock. Join us to uncover the secret to staying green all winter long!

1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Harris Center. This learning experience is for homeschoolers and remote learners in Grades 1 through 5. All classes will meet outside, and will follow the Harris Center’s COVID-19 outing guidelines.

Cost: $20 per class for Harris Center supporters / $30 for all others
