  • Tanglewood Nature Center
Homeschooling families - want to get outside on a science expedition, meet other families, and learn about a topic in-depth with hands-on exploration? Our homeschool drop-in program returns the last Tuesday of the month! Each program will dive into a different topic, and the curriculum is designed to enrich and expand on STEM standards. Dress for the weather and expect to spend some time outdoors!

This week, we'll learn about how playing for animals and for people can make life better for us all!  Dogs, cats, rodents, birds, and reptiles are some of the most popular household pets. Learn about the benefits for humans and pets when we play and live together. Ian presents the most recent research and findings during this interactive presentation. (And, of course, expect to play and exercise too!) 

$5 for a family if you're a member of Tanglewood; if you're not yet a member, $10 for the family. Cash is preferred.

Please arrive a few minutes early to check in, so that the program can start on time.
