What is field school? It’s kind of like camp for adults. Join us for 3 full days and one evening of fun, exciting activities and opportunities for lifelong natural history learning. The world will be our oyster as we spend time exploring the habitats, ecosystems, and science within our community. We are bringing in some ringers as we explore beaches, birding, boat-building, creative writing, a service project, mammal skull studies, a campfire, and a locally sourced banquet. We will provide a picnic lunch each day and a banquet dinner Friday.
