The Frosty Drew Nature Center’s Homeschool Science classes will offer a look at the different ecosystems outside the Frosty Drew Nature Center and the resources inside the Nature Center. For the Fall, a marine and aquatic emphasis will be offered in the programs on Mondays; a terrestrial emphasis will be offered on Wednesdays. The focus will be on species we can find in Ninigret Park and Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge. Programs will follow the Frosty Drew philosophy of minds-on, hands-on learning.

Programs for two different age groups are available. The programs offered to a younger age group - for ages 6-9 will be a beginners-level class. The programs offered to the older group - for ages 10-13 - will be geared to more advanced learners. However, if a child has prior knowledge of a subject, he or she is welcome to join the older group.

Fall programs are offered through December 2017. Advance registration is required.
