Learning about macroinvertebrates during an environmental education program for homeschoolers

Environmental Education Homeschool Programs

We welcome the opportunity to work with local homeschool groups. Working with homeschoolers allows us to combine the strength of your drive to provide high quality, individualized education with our ability to create unique, science-based lessons tailored to the specific needs of your group. Below are some examples of popular topics, but remember, we’re happy to custom design a program to fit with your group’s area of study.
