Many of our programs can be adapted for younger children. Fast paced and handson activities include puppets, finger plays, music, stories, and movement to keep their interest. Preschool programs will be 30-45 minutes and the program fee is $10.
If travel is not possible due to time or budget constraints, let us come to you. Many of the field trip topics can be adapted to your school site or we can create a field day of activities with stations for small group experiments, writing experiences, and observations.

Project WILD, Project WET, Project Learning Tree, and Hoosier RiverWatch are supplementary environmental education curricula designed to teach children how to think, not what to think. All kinds of activities to integrate into every subject area are included. By attending a 6 hour workshop with our facilitators, you will be prepared to use the materials with your class or youth group. Workshops can be arranged for your school or adult group of 10 or more. Some have a small fee. NEW: Early Childhood activity guides from Project WILD and Project Learning Tree!
We have assembled a collection of videos, laminated posters, CDs, and equipment for you to use in the classroom. There is no charge for borrowing these materials, we only ask that they be returned promptly for others to use. We also have many books and files of activities and background information. Please let us know if you need information to prepare for lessons.
