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 hands-on the diversity of plants and animals living in these different habitats. Young naturalists will sharpen their observation skills and leave camp with a deeper appreciation and understanding for the natural world around them.

Prairie Ridge is 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.  No transportation is available between the Museum and Prairie Ridge.
