Eco-Explorers: After-School Nature Club

Weekly Nature Exploration and Science Club for Grades K-5

At Eco-Explorers, students will engage in meaningful outdoor environmental education after school! We strive to foster fun, safe, and immersive interactions with nature right at your child’s school. During the program, students will enjoy time exploring the great outdoors, creating nature crafts, conducting science experiments, and getting to meet live animal ambassadors from Irvine Nature Center. Topics from past club sessions include exploring habitats, nature science experiments, pioneers in the field of nature, and animal caretaking. We hope to share with students the wonders of nature, teach some simple things they can do to conserve it, and nurture a lasting connection with the natural world around them.

NOW ENROLLING for Spring 2024!  Classes begin the week of March 18th. Click to learn more and register your student for the SPRING SESSION at one of our existing nature clubs.
