Join us at the VINS Nature Center for a Homeschool Day at VINS!   Each lesson takes place in our Outdoor Classroom or August Pavilion which provide the perfect settings for outdoor exploration and nature play in the company of other families. This three-hour program will include opportunities to build towers using solids, create a toy that uses air to work, and experiment with mixtures and solutions. There will also be time for the public raptor show, lunch, and a hike.

Anyone can sign up for these days, whether you participate in our regular series, are on one of our waitlists, or you live at a distance.  Join us for science, nature, and fun! Parent/Guardian presence is required during all programs.  If you have children in multiple grade bands, please contact us so we can help you meet this requirement and register appropriately

  • Participants are required to wear masks, maintain social distance and wash hands prior to the start of the lesson. 
  • All materials are disinfected before and after each lesson.
  • Lessons are taught outside.

We are unable to refund any sessions that are missed due to travel, illness or other commitments. In the event that VINS has to cancel a lesson or lessons, families will receive a full refund for the value of those missed lesson(s).
