Homeschool at Riverbend

January 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Homeschool students, ages 5–10, are invited to visit Riverbend’s 30 acres to explore animal adaptations, ecosystems, life cycles, and more using hands-on science skills.

Every second Wednesday of the month, from 2–3:30 pm.

During this hour-and-a-half program each month, trained Riverbend Educators will lead students through outdoor explorations, science experiments, and student-driven and inquiry-based crafts. Their programs align with NGSS standards and enhance student learning at home.
