Our naturalists are highly trained and experienced in working with groups of all ages and abilities. They are dedicated to helping others learn and enjoy our natural environment. At Wargo Nature Center, students will have access to the lake, woods, marsh, and prairie ecosystems. Our nature education group sizes are kept with a small student/naturalist ratio. If your class is unable to come to the nature center, we would love to bring our programs to you.
  
We encourage you to explore the Partnership Program in which students experience the outdoors in the fall, winter, and spring at a discounted rate.
 
Homeschool opportunities are also available.
