JUNIOR NATURALIST CAMP SUMMER 2019
While the Center has thoroughly enjoyed the past many years conducting camps, unfortunately, given the requirement for increased oversight, coupled with a limited staff, the Center for Wildlife Education will no longer be offering Junior Naturalist Summer Camps.
We are looking forward to a new summer plan and soon will be implementing other activities that could be of interest to you and your child. I want to thank you for your support of the wildlife center and we hope to see you soon.
