Education Programs

Natural history programs are offered to Society members and the public year-round at the Green Briar Nature Center. Programs include a wide variety of fun and adventure in the natural world for children; nature walks and other activities for families; nature classes and jam workshops for adults plus special teacher training workshops designed for educators. A Program Schedule is printed twice a year.

Naturalists in the Society’s Education Department serve public and private schools with an extensive outreach program. Classes include: Lessons in Field Ecology, Discovering Nature, Live Animal Storytimes, and Burgess Adventures in Nature Rental Kits.

Schools can arrange for a naturalist to go to their school or for students to come to the Nature Center. An hourly rate is charged. A School Programs Brochure is available outlining each program offered. Inquiries may be sent to the Director of Education. Phone: 508-888-6870 voice mail ext. 13
