Parents who homeschool their children are invited to take part in an excellent educational opportunity that's provided by the Hartley Nature Center.  As part of their Homeschool Classes program, they offer a monthly two hour environmental education class on the third Thursday of each month from September through May.  The first of those classes is happening September 19.

Students are grouped by age - from ages 4 to 15 years old - into a two hour session offered either in the morning from 9-11AM or in the afternoon from 1-3PM.  Each month, students participate in a variety of outdoor activities and experiments.  Topics are wide-ranging and age-appropriate.

Advance registration is required.  Families can register by phone, mail, or online via the Hartley Nature Center website.  For a listing of topics along with homeschool registration information, visit or call the office at 724-6735.
