School Outreach Program Request Form
Keep your Pre-K to 5th grade students connected to nature through the winter months; our naturalists bring the outdoors indoors—and right into your classroom!

With other teachers in your school, schedule a morning or afternoon of programming. Our outreach programs are hands-on, fun, and full of excellent information, promoting an elevated understanding of local ecology by helping students understand the interaction of animals, humans, and the environment.

Each winter month features a different program topic. Programs run about 30 minutes per class. Our naturalists set up in one location, and 3–5 classes rotate through.
November: Turkey Vultures
December: Salamanders
January: Beavers
February: Spiders
For the program descriptions, go to http://hendrickscountyparks.org/programs/school-field-trips-and-outreach/outreach-programs/

Due to the popularity of our programs, teachers may only choose their top TWO programs. We will attempt to honor additional requests after October 15 if we have availability. If you would like to schedule multiple outreach programs, please submit a request form for each one.

School outreach programs are completely FREE of charge for all Hendricks County schools. All outreach programs are subject to naturalist availability and weather conditions.

If you didn't see what you are looking for here, group programming is available for a charge. For more information, go to http://hendrickscountyparks.org/programs/school-field-trips-and-outreach/group-programs/
