Many visitors to Mosquito Hill Nature Center take advantage of the wealth of educational programs offered by staff, volunteers and guest instructors. Individuals and families can check out our seasonal calendar of events here.
If you're looking for a program for your classroom, scout troop, senior center, or corporate team, our naturalist staff would be happy to help you to plan an engaging educational or team-building program for your group.
Classroom teachers are welcome to inquire about our environmental education field trips. Fall, winter and spring programs are tailored for third, fourth and fifth grades but can be adapted for younger ages. Never-ending Nutrient was written for third and fourth grade, but can be adapted for fifth and sixth grade. Our Eco-challenge low ropes course is available for fifth grade and older. Astronomy from the Ground Up, a curriculum from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, includes a number of hands-on activities tailored for second, third and fourth grade.
