Homeschool 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 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 using scientific equipment, or play games.

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.

The inside section of the class will be mixed-age learning  - with participants in their family groups.

In general, for the outside portion of the class, students will be grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate topic exploration (parents will stay with the younger age-group to assist).

The schedule of events is subject to changed based on the status of the coronavirus response, weather, staffing, and other situations that may arise. If Calvert Nature Society or Calvert County Natural Resources Division cancels a program, a full refund will be issued.
