School Programs

In addition to programs for visiting youth and adults, Chippewa Nature Center (CNC) offers science- and history-based programs for school groups. Our programs are geared to meet the needs of the teacher as well as the students. For teachers, we provide a list of standards correlations in our program brochure and programs at CNC as well as On the Road, and keep program fees to a minimum. For students, we offer fun, hands-on exploration of the natural world at CNC – whether it be science or history.
