We will meet at the brown pavilion towards the back.

We will begin at 10:05, please allow extra time for construction on Heckscher.

Who is This For

This class is appropriate for kids ages 5+. The class will have fun, hands-on learning to engage younger kids, while still being interesting for older kids and parents! Please see our FAQ page for any questions.

What to Expect

We will begin by doing some water quality testing using tools that scientists use. Then we will observe the land and land creatures before venturing into the water with nets to see what we can catch. Each class is unique and we will learn about what we find as we go. This location has no running water and only portapotties. (I usually throw a jug of water in my car for feet rinsing when its time to leave).

What to Bring

Water shoes or sneakers MUST BE WORN, shorts or clothes that can get wet (swimsuits are ok), water bottle, sunscreen; optional: personal nets or buckets

*Note*: This location is a fishing spot and boat ramp, so there may be debris on the ground. Everyone MUST wear a shoe that encloses the foot at all times or they will not be allowed into the water.
