Home School Programs

Carpenter Nature Center’s Home School Programs are created to offer students in home schools an opportunity to meet other children, take part in environmental education programs, and enjoy the outdoors. Programs are offered throughout the school year with topics varying seasonally for children ages 5 – 9 or ages 10 years and older. Programs include an outdoor portion so dress appropriately for the weather. Reservations are required for all programs.

September 12th, 1-3 p.m.


Food Chains (Ages 5-9): Students will study the energy flow in food chains by finding clues in nature to create their own food chains.

Ecosystems (Ages 10 & up): Students will investigate ecosystems through population sampling, food web simulation and a game on limiting factors.
