• Hands-on nature studies in the neighborhood

• Field trips to Olbrich Gardens and Aldo Leopold Nature Center• Guest speakers exploring ecosystems, wildlife, and protecting the environment

Each afternoon, participants enjoy:

• Visual arts with Amy Cavi, artist and art educator with a background in teaching people of all ages and abilities.
