PROGRAM REGISTRATION - NATURE IN THE CLASSROOM (NIC)

Teachers and Educators!

Even though we love having kids down at the Nature Center, w

e realize that sometimes time, weather, and budgets don't allow it. We also recognize that teachers often would like to dig a little deeper into something that the class is studying or present a standards based environmental education program using our extensive resources (pelts, birds, skulls, tracks, other animal signs, and more!)

In addition, it's great to have experienced folks just get kids outside while they're learning!

Therefore, we offer one-hour programs in the classroom or school yard at an extremely low, subsidized price. Each program offers unique curriculum presented by DNS instructors, that engages students in a number of topics. All of our NIC programs help teachers meet state science standards, while engaging students through inquiry based activities (see program overview).

Below are links to registration documents, program descriptions, and pricing scales. Please follow the directions below to register.
