COVID-19 Updates

Public programs are canceled in accordance with CDC and local public health guidance in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak.

We will be following the CDC and current local guidance on schools returning to in-person learning and the permission of field trips or classroom visits. Once field trips and classroom visits are allowed, we will update our strategies to keep your students and our staff safe in accordance to the guidelines provided by the CDC and local public health guidance at that time. Until then we will be offering virtual visits

Virtual Visits

In addition to our field trips and classroom programs, we offer teachers additional resources to supplement classroom lessons.
