2019 Fall Registration Sheet

The Nature Explorer program is a series of natural science classes designed to supplement homeschooling curriculum. We explore various topics through interactive lectures as well as hands-on activities both inside and outside. We also provide a Parent Page, an outline of the day’s presentation for review and/or portfolio use.

Families can choose to sign up for all the classes or choose only those that best fit their needs; most of the classes are not sequential. Registration is ongoing throughout the year. Fees for each class vary depending upon the type of materials needed for that class. We prefer class fees to be paid in advance to allow for the purchase of materials; however, other arrangements can be made, if necessary. If class size does not meet 10 students by the first class meeting on September 11th, the class will not continue this session.

Families may register through the mail (2300 Benton Center Rd., Benton Harbor, MI 49022), in person at the nature center (Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or by phone during business hours (269-927-4832).

We request the parents of our six- to nine-year-old students stay to assist their children unless they also have younger children who require supervision (outside the classrooms, please). Parents of our older students (10 years and up) are welcome to stay and share the discoveries, but their presence is not necessary.
