 Join us at the Learning Conference to:  

  • Hike with a guide through preschool and Nature Center grounds.
  • Observe in preschool classrooms.  
  • Engage with materials in our resource room 
  • Participate in breakout sessions:  

Habitat Hike- With the guidance of a Dodge Nature Center naturalist, learn about local habitats and ecosystems.  Find out what natural resources you can go deeper with at your own setting.
