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



Nature Detectives programs, books and resources present a series of opportunities all year round to explore the outdoor world through place-based and inquiry-based learning experiences.

Designed for kindergarten to third grade students, we blend art, literacy, science and stories to engage curiosity, while building naturalist and problem-solving skills. Nature Detectives learn new ways to observe, increase sensory awareness, and develop meaningful relationships with the outdoor world in a loosely structured, and high-touch format. 

By discovering “nature’s connections,” students begin to understand their role in enjoying and caring for the outdoor world.

Browse our website to learn more about our activities, Community Science and art projects, and many simple ways to share outdoor experiences, build skills, and learn about both the wonders and  challenges of caring for nature and our place in it.
