Our science-based curriculum introduces students to the wonders of the natural world. New topics are covered each week through hands-on activities, meeting live animals, games and time for nature play and socialization. Sign up for one or all of the classes. Classes are limited to 12 students. Please bring a snack and water bottle to each class. Dress to go outside in all weather conditions!

*Please note that our Animal Curator Program does not follow the same curriculum as above. Students are immersed in hands-on activities working with our resident and rehabilitating wildlife. Activities include cleaning and setting up tanks, providing enrichment activities for wildlife and learning more about the care of wild animals. Students alternate animal care tasks with hikes, nature journaling and other group activities at DPNC.
