Nature Detective

Come put your detective skills to the test by solving nature mysteries! Visit 9 different self-guided stations and complete the tasks in order to become an official Nature Detective!

Stations topics include: Mystery Sounds, Pond Habitats, Insect Who?, Up In a Tree, Animal Tracks, Bird Food Finding, Camouflage, Pond Striding, and Nature Mystery Museum. 

This experience is designed with elementary students in mind, but can be fun for people of any age! Stations have both written and picture directions. Most stations include an extension to increase understanding after the main task is complete. 

If you book this experience for your private group, we will bring everything to you, including clean up. Each session can accommodate a max of 36 students. This experience can be done inside or outside, but does include some messy aspects, including sand and water at some stations.
