    Homeschool First Fridays is a series of environmental education programs developed especially for homeschoolers ages 4 to 12.  These classes are a great way to get hands-on science and nature lessons, receive help on projects and research and network with other homeschooling families. Each two-hour program will consist of indoor and outdoor hands-on learning. Depending on the topic, students may observe live animals, collect aquatic creatures, take measurements of water quality, or play games. 
    • Parents with younger children (ages 4-6) will stay with the group; parents of older children have the option of staying or not; there is no charge for parents since they are expected to participate as mentors and teachers.  Staff will provide guidance for parents on how to assist.
    • Siblings younger than 4 are welcome, but must be under the care of a parent/guardian at all times and should not distract the program participants.
    • Older and younger students will be grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate topic exploration (parents will stay with the younger group).

    Homeschool First Fridays is a series of environmental education programs developed especially for homeschoolers ages 4 to 12.  These classes are a great way to get hands-on science and nature lessons, receive help on projects and research and network with other homeschooling families. Each two-hour program will consist of indoor and outdoor hands-on learning. Depending on the topic, students may observe live animals, collect aquatic creatures, take measurements of water quality, or play games. 

    • Parents with younger children (ages 4-6) will stay with the group; parents of older children have the option of staying or not; there is no charge for parents since they are expected to participate as mentors and teachers.  Staff will provide guidance for parents on how to assist.
    • Siblings younger than 4 are welcome, but must be under the care of a parent/guardian at all times and should not distract the program participants.
    • Older and younger students will be grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate topic exploration (parents will stay with the younger group).
