MORE DETAILS:

The Roaring Brook Nature Center offers a year-round schedule of educational programs for all ages. These programs range from week-long summer experiences to our school-year Discovery Days series for students. Seminars, lectures workshops and field trips are available to adults on a wide range of natural history topic and environmental issues.

For the classroom teacher, we offer a wide selection of educational programs both at the Nature Center and as outreach programs in the schools.

Seasonal nature walks for all ages are offered throughout the year. Fall foliage walks, winter excursions by snowshoe, March maple-sugaring demonstrations and early morning bird walks provide year-round entertainment as well as first-rate learning experiences. During the summer months, evening nature walks provide an opportunity to learn about nocturnal creatures.

In addition to our regular schedule of nature-related programs, special events include: our annual Hobgoblin Fair, a Halloween children'€™s event sponsored by the Roaring Brook Nature Center Auxiliary; our Roaring Brook concerts, a music series featuring folk and other fine music; and special events for members and friends.
