We explore science and practice critical thinking through hands-on experiments, art projects and outdoor adventures. Our classes offer a low naturalist-to-student ratio and we inspire a love of nature and learning through contact with live rescued reptiles and amphibians. The cost of the 12-week session is $588. This price includes all art & science supplies as well as a hearty snack (fruit, crackers, etc.). All of our lead teachers have college degrees and have been thoroughly trained to teach our curriculum and introduce children to live reptiles and amphibians. Fall 2016 Course Description: Wild Animal Explorers! Join Tree Frog Treks for our Wild Animal Explorer program! We will learn about the five classes of vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) by meeting live animals, studying skins, skulls, and specimens, and exploring the natural world. Hold frogs and do the frog walk! Find out about the secret lives of your own pets! Touch a Red-tailed hawk wing and talons, learn birdcalls, and use binoculars to see our feathered friends up close. Find out which bears used to live in San Francisco, and how they can sleep all winter without eating. Develop your powers of observation, make fun take-home art projects, and come face-to-face with frogs, salamanders, lizards, snakes and our whole cast of creepy, crawly co-workers!
