Exploring 38 acres of grassy prairie, lowland forest, ponds, and a stream is the perfect pastime for budding young naturalists in this full-day program based at Prairie Ridge. Campers will have the opportunity to have a true field experience as they investigate the diversity of plants and animals living in different habitats.  Junior Naturalists will sharpen their observation skills, have an overnight camping trip on Thursday, and leave with a deeper appreciation and understanding for the natural world around them.

Prairie Ridge Ecostation is a satellite of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences; located off Reedy Creek Road, close to Blue Ridge Road and the NC Museum of Art.  All children must be dropped off and picked up at Prairie Ridge Ecostation.  No transportation is available between the Museum and Prairie Ridge Ecostation.
