Outreach Programs : Stage Nature Center comes to your classroom!

Our mission is to provide children with resources and education to inspire the appreciation and preservation of nature. We do this by interpreting the natural world around us and acting as an educational resource in biology, ecology and natural history for students of all ages.

To make nature education more accessible to schools and educators, we offer a variety of outreach programs that will fulfill your instructional and educational needs. All of our outreach programs include hands-on interactions with mounts, pelts and other bio-facts.

The naturalists and instructors at Stage Nature Center enjoy working with school-aged children and helping them to expand their knowledge of the natural world.
