At For-Mar Nature Preserve & Arboretum, we’ve got the best outdoor classroom for helping kids understand the world around them. Each year, thousands of children come to For-Mar to learn about the plant and animal life that makes up our unique ecosystem. We have expert naturalists and horticulturists on staff to help your students discover and uncover what’s great about the outdoors. From bluebirds to bats, from organic gardening to worms and snakes, there are lessons here for every age at For-Mar Nature Preserve & Arboretum.

From our Knee-High Naturalist Program and school science nights to courses that meet science curriculum standards and adaptive recreation programs, we can develop a program for just about any group.

There is no charge for a general parks information presentation.
