Afterschool is the perfect time to get outside. At the Audubon Center, kids can climb trees, catch bugs, look for animal tracks, build forts, and learn about the natural world, all with the guidance of our experienced Teacher Naturalists. Each session includes plenty of play time and a good dash of learning about nature.
Afterschool Nature Club is a drop-off program available for K-6th graders on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 pm during session dates. $50/participant ($45 for Members).
