Prairie Ridge Summer Nature Adventures for High Schoolers (grades 9-12)

  • 8:30am Monday, June 12, 2023 - 12:30pm Friday, June 16, 2023

Put on your field scientist hats and let’s go! Whether documenting salamanders in our stream, identifying dragonflies by the pond or checking nest boxes, each day we’ll dive into the different habitats of Prairie Ridge and learn about the organisms that live in these spaces through hands-on, outdoor experiences. Each day’s offerings will be unique, as we modify programming to reflect what’s going on in nature! Will we be searching for ladybugs? Helping collect data on our purple martin colony? Getting creative with nature art? Join us and find out!

Summer Nature Adventures for High Schoolers is a three-day, partial-day “mini-camp” for students entering grades 9–12 in fall 2023.
