Bring the homeschool experience to The Wild Center and immerse yourself in STEAM-based nature learning like never before.

Spend the day exploring our brand new Climate Solutions exhibit or walking among the trees at Wild Walk. This year we are offering private homeschool experiences, events, and activities catered specifically for you. Homeschool families are welcome to participate in private Wild Classroom Workshops, meet our animal ambassadors, and stop by the Naturalist Cabinet for science and art-based activities.
