Nature Near You Curriculum

Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!

Thank you for participating in Nature Near You!

Here you will find the resources you need to get your child out and exploring with these special kits develop by the Environmental Learning Center.  A special thank you goes to our supporters the Association of Science and Technology Centers and Voya Financial.


There will be virtual unpacking of the kit with an ELC environmental educator.  If you can't make the meeting, a recording of that workshop will be available on this page.
