Nature Investigators

The January and February sessions of Nature Investigators have been cancelled to comply with the stay-home order. We encourage you to register for our" Here Comes Spring" session below.

Calling all kids! Join this three-week science, literacy, and art program designed to connect students from ages 7 to 12 to their local park while they practice being a scientist and discovering the world around them. Each session will be focused on a central theme students will answer through hands-on nature exploration, observation, measurement, journal exercises, craft projects, and team building games. Students may participate in more than one session at the same location since themes change each month.

Nature Investigators will be held from 1:30-5 p.m. for three consecutive Wednesdays and 3-5 p.m. on Fridays at Ragle Ranch, Crane Creek, Sonoma Valley, and Spring Lake. The cost is $140 per camper, per session and registration is required.

For more information, contact Kristin Suarez by email at Kristin.Suarez@sonoma-county.org or by phone at (707) 539-2865.
