CORONAVIRUS ALERT. As the Arc does its share during these challenging times, all events are cancelled until further notice, but may be reopened for registration if we are able. Please check back if you are interested. Most of our hiking trails will be kept open to the public in the meantime for you to explore at your own pace and in your own time.

Homeschool Day at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary!!

We invite homeschoolers in our area to join us for a field trip to the Highlands Nature Sanctuary June- October every 1st Wednesday of the month! Each month we will be teaching a different subject based on nature. The program will start at 10am and last about an hour but you are welcome to stay and hike our trails and enjoy a packed lunch at the picnic shelter or on the deck. Registration is required for these events to help us get an idea of how many students will be joining us.
