Nature Center  Programs

Dobbs Park Nature center hosts a Saturday Program for the general public once a month.  We also offer group programs for any organization during the week.  The slideshow includes pictures from a variety of activities, and you're invited to join us for our next one!

2008 Nature Center Saturday Programs

 Come learn something new at the Nature Center one Saturday a month!  Our programs are always educational and everyone is invited to attend each program.  In order to make everyone's experience enjoyable, we ask that you use the following guidelines:
    1.  Children MUST be accompanied by an adult for the entire program.
        2.  Some programs involve outdoor activities, so please dress for the weather.
        3.  Inclement weather may cancel some programs, so please call ahead for updates.

Nature Center Group Programs

In addition to our monthly Saturday Programs, we also offer naturalist led programs during the week for school or organizational groups, either on-site (at the Nature Center) or at your site.  We can customize the program for the group size and age of the participants, and the length of time you have available.  We also offer naturalist led themed hikes.  The standard charge is $0.50 per child, with an extra charge for some activities.  Please call at least one week in advance to schedule a program.  During our high volume months, we may not be able to accommodate groups that have not planned in advance.  For a list of topics and activities, click here.

We also have a list of topics available at the Native American Museum.
