Schedule field studies and guided walks for your school, family, or community group at our place
Our Environmental Education Specialist and Naturalists share their knowledge through a variety of programs. You’ll learn while doing. Fields, forests, wetlands, and the Susquehanna River comprise our outdoor classroom. We have access to network of trails covering about 1,000 contiguous acres of Camp Lackawanna and the Howland Preserve.
The programs encourages participants to discover the natural world around them. Topics are available for most age groups and mixed-age groups. During programs for young children role-play, examine specimens, sing, and explore activities. Elementary through high school students are guided through grade-appropriate activities. Guided walks can be combined with indoor presentation. Call 570-836-3835 to schedule your program.
