Spending time in nature has always been an important part of good mental health and well-being. It is even more important now that we get less time outdoors. While you can’t always enjoy the local parks and trail systems like you once did, we have developed some resources to help you maximize the limited time and space that you have available to you.

NEW!! For those of you who would like to chat with us online or sign up for one of our online nature experiences including presentations (live and recorded), live interactive lessons and recorded content please sign up here. We will let you know when online nature experiences will be available and how to take part.

NEW!! We will also have an online version of our Wildlife Explorers Program available for children ages 5 - 12 years old. To take part in our Wildlife Explorers Online Nature Discovery Program please sign up here.

Crafts are a great way to take a break and flex a different part of your brain! We’ve created crafts that use objects that you can find at home like milk cartons and toilet paper rolls. Some crafts come with templates that you can print off at home to make creating the crafts as easy as possible for younger children.
