We are excited to offer programs for Homeschoolers in 2017! Homeschool Happenings programs are designed for ages 7 – 10 and will occur the third Thursday of the month unless otherwise noted. The typical program includes interactive and outdoor activities (weather permitting), crafts and games. These programs integrate scientific inquiry with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).

Because of the need to prepare materials in advance, this is not a drop in program.  Students may reserve a spot by CLICKING HERE TO REGISTER or by calling 740-587-2535.

2017 Schedule:

March: Water, Water Everywhere – Water is always on the move through the water cycle. Explore its incredible properties and journey!

April: Wildflowers of the Woods – Learn about early spring wildflowers and what makes them unique. We will end with an invasive garlic mustard pull conservation project!

May: Migration Madness – Birds travel both to and through Ohio during the spring migration. Learn about the wonders of migration and visit a bird banding station to see science in action and our feathered friends up close. You may even get to release a bird!

Summer break: Look for other children’s programming on our calendar!

August: Monarchs! – We will explore the Monarch’s life cycle and participate in a citizen science project.

September: Macroinvertebrates (2nd Thursday) – Sample the macroinvertebrates in our wetlands and learn how we can determine water quality by what we find!

October: Art and the Environment – Art and nature go hand in hand. Come get creative in this fun program!
