Irvine Summer 2020:

Families Engaging Remotely with Nature


With families spending more time at home this summer and looking for new things to do, consider subscribing to our new Family FERN Boxes and have the wonders of nature brought right to your door! Each month Irvine will send you a fun-filled nature box, loaded with materials and activities that can be completed in your own backyard or neighborhood and engage the whole family. Each box will be designed around a particular environmental theme, such as Birding, Experiments, Gardening, and more. There are twelve different themes in all, so no two FERN Boxes will be the same.

We offer three different plan options to suit your level of interest: a month-by-month plan, a special three-month summer plan, and a full-year plan. Boxes will be shipped during the second week of each month. To receive a month-by-month box, you must sign up by the first Thursday of that month; this allows our staff time to prepare boxes to be shipped the following week. Rates are as follows:
