DeVries Nature Conservancy

Nature Playgroups

Our playgroups are designed to immerse your preschool to early elementary-aged children in the natural world.

Each week the class will consist of different activities, hikes, games and crafts all centralized on a monthly theme.

Follow us on Facebook for details each week. 

2018 playgroup schedule

Spring session: Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:00 pm

June Theme: River Explorers

Weeks where there is not a formal playgroup - please feel free to bring a picnic and come meet up with other families to play in the playscape!

Homeschool Programs

We cater to homeschool families throughout our area.

We provide programs once a month with hands-on activities, team work, and in depth lessons on our natural world. 

The cost is $3 per student per session. 

We encourage your child to follow us through the entire program and will offer incentive pricing for those who sign up for all of the programs.
