February 2–May 27, Saturdays & Sundays, 2:30–5:00 PM


Children 5–12 will enjoy a wide range of habitat and wildlife experiences in a series of hands-on stations, as well as guided walks within the park, with a wealth of additional activities, including arts and cultural activities, tailored to middle schoolers. Children and youth learn important concepts such as 'ecosystem,' 'habitat,' 'indigenous,' and 'introduced,' with living examples in the park, and become aware of the species with whom they are sharing the land. This Program is made possible by the Habitat Conservation Fund Program.



June 25–August 3, Monday–Friday, 10:00 AM–2:00 PM

Activity leaders training: June 18–22, 9:00 am–2:00 pm. Volunteer with us! If you are 14 to 18 years old, like working with younger kids and want to learn science and have fun at the same time. You must participate in the training in order to participate. We can refer you to a youth employment program or sign off your graduation community service hours requirement.
