Analyze a forest with mathematics and measurements. Calculate tree height, assess tree diversity, and identify with dichotomous keys. Consider how forest composition affects bird habitat and how we can address threats to Vermont forests.

We integrate the outdoor classroom with rigorous academic concepts, conservation-based themes, and connection with nature. Audubon Vermont's series of monthly outdoor nature-based programs focus on key science concepts. Each program is designed to give you a platform from which to build units/lessons in your homeschooling or to supplement your child's classroom learning at school.

We offer a monthly session for 6- 12 year-olds. We have two teachers available to give us the flexibility to work in age-appropriate small groups or come together as one big class.

Note: Parents may drop off students or are welcome to join the program.

New this year! Schedule: Five hours of programming, including a 30 minute lunch break. All programs run from 9 am to 2 pm.

Fee: Audubon Vermont members $25; Non-members $30
