Speaker Series

The E.C.O. Center hosts a Speaker Series event each month, March through September, that is open to the public.  Professionals from various fields present on a wide range of topics that pertain to the Center's mission and goals of providing natural resource education opportunities for the community.  You can count on hearing great presentations and seeing neat props, displays, and/or live animals at these programs!

Little Critters

The Little Critters preschool program at the E.C.O. Center is for our youngest exploratory learners!  Preschoolers will interact with wildlife and participate in guided activities that will help them discover the natural world around them.  A parent/adult will help their little critter(s) through these fun programs as E.C.O. Center staff help encourage and foster hands-on learning together.  For questions or more information, email Sarah at sgrimes@romega.us

Student Exploration Days

Throughout the year, the E.C.O. Center offers regular Student Exploration Days for students 2nd grade through high school.  These programs are divided into grade-appropriate sessions and are perfect for homeschool students and public or private students on break days.  E.C.O. Center staff creates fun and hands-on learning as we unpack a wildlife or ecological topic each session.  Students and parents both love the Center's Student Exploration Days as they make for great additional science lessons and overall experiential learning!  To be added to the email list for this program, email Sarah at sgrimes@romega.us
