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 April – 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.
