*Hello! We are cancelling our Eco Explorers: "Weekend Edition" program, we apologize for any inconvenience. Based upon popular request, we are restructuring/combining our weekend community programs and introducing Passport to Nature for the whole family! At just $15 per family, we want to invite people of all ages to spend time and learn about nature in nearby parks and natural areas. Join us Saturday, May 26th at Bush's Pasture Park with the whole family! 

Designed for ages 7-13, this guided day trip blends discovery, learning and outdoor fun! Explore riverside habitats with Straub Environmental Center educators. Catch and release aquatic insects, study cottonwood trees, and create nature art. Bring a sack lunch. This outing will take place weather permitting; bring a rain coat and waterproof shoes. Eco Explorers weekend field trips are offered on the first Saturdays of each month through October.

Location: Meet at the Filbert Grove Day Use Shelter.

Cost: $20/child (includes a nature journal and field bag).
