As we explore the flora and fauna around the Nature Center
we will see firsthand how interconnected our world is.
Starting from the sun and diving deep underwater we will explore
food chains and webs to learn about everyone's place in an ecosystem,
and how that system may change as autumn gets underway.

Nature Center can create special programs for your home school group.
