Inspire imagination and wonder. Build skills in art, literacy and science.



Nature Detectives programs, books and free resources give children in kindergarten through third grade the freedom to explore the outdoor world through inquiry-based learning that extends far beyond the classroom, pages of a book or screen.

Our programs blend art, literacy, science and stories as we: build naturalist skills, learn new ways to observe, increase our sensory awareness and develop meaningful relationships with the outdoor world in a loosely structured, high-touch format. They discover the connections that exist in nature and their role as a part of our world.

Browse our website for activities, art projects, creative writing journals, and other simple ways you can share nature experiences  – as provider at your site or as a parent or grandparent with your child.
