At Home with Nature is a program designed to supplement science and history homeschool education through fun, interactive, hands-on activities. Each series consists of three programs, all held outdoors. Students ages 5-12 will be divided into groups based on their age. Each session is limited to 30 students, with students divided into two groups.

Each series is $20 per student and $18 for each additional sibling. (CNC members: $16 per student, $14.40 for each additional sibling.)

Pre-registration is required at least one week before the start of the series. A complete health form must be on file. CNC follows guidance issued by the Midland County Health Department regarding COVID-19. Contact Jenn Kirts, Director of Programs, at for questions or current protocol.

Series must be registered for as a package, and missed sessions cannot be made up or refunded. Individual sessions will be cancelled due to weather or program restrictions at CNC’s discretion. Sessions cancelled by CNC will be refunded.
