School & Group Programs at Felix Neck
At Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, we offer many fun and educational nature-based programs year-round for students of all ages. Our trails through woodlands, along salt marsh and beaches, and around fresh and saltwater ponds are the ideal outdoor classroom for hands-on, experiential learning. Our Discovery Room is an interactive, indoor classroom filled with local natural history exhibits, live animals, and a view into our barn owl nesting box through a live-feed camera. The Felix Neck staff has many years of experience in education and natural history and look forward to customizing programs to meet the needs of your group.
