Youth Groups

Youth Community Programs are designed for groups of children outside of school activities such as church youth groups, child care programs, etc.  The naturalists at CNC recognize that children learn best when they are having fun.  These fun, hands-on programs were created from commonly requested topics, and are both educational and recreational.

Groups are invited to enjoy the hiking trails, explore the Interpretive Center, or use the picnic tables before or after their scheduled programs!

Programs for 5 to 10 years

Programs for 10 years & older
