Home School Days

Village Creek State Park
Looking for a fun place to bring your home school children to learn about nature and the outdoors? Have we got the place for you! Each month we will explore a different topic in a hands-on, educational, and fun hour or so of learning guaranteed to get your child excited about animals, plants, and the world around them. Our first Home school Day will be Thursday, September 27th from 10 am until noon. We will be learning about animal adaptations by doing some bone sleuthing with a hands-on study of skulls and bones. We’ll end with a fun craft activity to check out what they learned.
