School & Group Programs at Arcadia
We offer a multitude of fun and educational nature-based programs year-round for students in preschool through college! Located in the beautiful Pioneer Valley at the base of the Holyoke range, Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary has more than 730 acres of floodplain and upland forest, vernal pools, riparian habitat, and grasslands, all home to a wide variety of wildlife and plant life.
Programs can take place at the sanctuary or offsite and are available to schedule on weekdays, evenings, and weekends. You may also schedule onsite programs at our Laughing Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Hampden.
