Join Oak Knoll naturalists for seasonal 6-week sessions designed for the homeschool community. Each class is 2.5 hours in length and provides a wonderful opportunity to meet in small pods, with other students of similar age, all while learning science outside in nature. Choose from one of three seasonally based sessions; Session 1: (Fall), Session 2: (Winter), Session 3: (Spring), or sign up for all three at a discounted rate!
Pre-registration is required for all sessions or for the entire series at a first come first served basis, space is limited. Classes happen mostly outdoors, have indoor access to bathrooms, will adhere to current social distance regulations and mask wearing of all staff and participants. This program is designed to keep students safe with small 'pods' sizes of students who are screened before each class. Please be prepared for all types of weather and hiking conditions, programs run rain or shine.
