Thursdays | September 9, October 14, and November 11
Our Secondary Homeschool Program is an immersive experience for children ages 12-14. Led by experienced naturalists, these older students will explore the outer reaches of our Center’s land and engage at a deeper level in topics such as geology, ecology, and conservation.
September 9, 2021 | Land Management
Join naturalists and the land management crew at Schlitz Audubon to learn about invasive species in our woods. We’ll discover where they come from, why they pose a problem, and what our team does to control them.
October 14, 2021 | Ecology through Ponding
Discover the life that is contained within the ponds at the Center, from turtles and frogs down to the tiniest micro-invertebrates. We’ll find these creatures and learn about species identification, the unique adaptations they each have, and why they are important to the ecosystem.
November 11, 2021 | Migratory Birds
Meet live raptors and birds of prey and discuss the species of birds that travel hundreds of miles each year to survive the winter months. We’ll learn why they leave, what they’re in search of, and why they return to our latitude each spring.
A completed student profile, which includes a health history and emergency care plan, is required for each participant prior to registration. We require a new student profile prior to each school year.
A maximum of 15 students will be enrolled in each group.
