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.

Eco-Explorers After-School Nature Club is currently offered at:

  • Beth Tfiloh Community School
  • Gilman School
  • Krieger Schechter Day School
  • Owings Mills Elementary School
  • Robert Moton Elementary School
  • Watershed Public Charter School.
