Weekly sessions run July 5- August 20 at Marsh Sanctuary in Mt Kisco and Croton Point Park in Croton on Hudson. Sessions are led by our team of skilled naturalists and outdoor educators from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM for Grades K-6, with two instructors and fourteen children total in each group. Mt Kisco and Croton sessions are both open for registration. 

For Summer programs, COVID Vaccination is required, mask wearing will be optional.
