Nature Nerds Family Club

Explore exciting nature topics with the whole family. Workshops typically take place the first Saturday of the month from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm.

Upcoming 2020 Workshops

Due to the COVID-19 closure, our April and May clubs have been cancelled.  

Saturday June 6, 10:30-12  Crawdads & Creekwalks

It's summer and our streams are teeming with life!  Prepare to get a little wet as we (safely) wade in big dry creek to look for aquatic insects, and find if there are any crawdads in our water feature!

Takeaway: Underwater viewer

*No nature club on July 4 – enjoy the holiday!*
