Join KNC for Homeschool Adventures!

Second Thursday of every month, 1:00pm - 3:00pm.

Join our naturalists to explore native Michigan habitats, study and recognize seasonal changes in plants and animals, and learn data collection methods from KNC’s own researchers! Every month our educators will lead a new project based adventure, taking students on different trails to study the phenology within diverse habitats.  Students will be encouraged to continue recording their observations throughout the year! Keep an eye on our website for supplemental materials to help you continue the conversation at home.

Participating children 4-17 must be registered for the program, but all ages are welcome to these engaging and family friendly monthly sessions. Programs are designed to help students gain a deeper understanding of the natural world through fun hands-on experiences, and each session will provide exciting opportunities for students to explore the scientific process in the field!

This is a program for the whole family!  Adults are asked to remain with the group and join in for the adventure!

Pricing per 8 session school year (September-April):

KNC Member: $55
Non-member: $80

You’re invited!  KNC’s Home School program will kick off with a picnic in the upper CAMP barn on September 14, 12:00pm-1:00pm. Pack a lunch and join our educators for a meal and festivities before we venture off on the first adventure of the school year!
