Our Education Programs

From early exploration to life-long nature lover, Dahlem offers education programs for children and of all ages.

Little Acorns Nature Preschool has two 3- and one 4-year old class that emphasizes learning and play while surrounded by nature.

Mighty Naturalist program series is perfect for ages 5 years and younger attending with an adult caregiver to get out and get hands-on learning, from following squirrels to unearthing life under a log.

Annie’s Big Nature Lesson is a week-long experience for classrooms (grades 2nd to 6th) to take their learning experiences to the outdoor classroom.  Dahlem’s Naturalist Educator and your classroom teacher both teach valuable lessons, observations, discussions, journaling, and hikes.  It’s an awarding winning program that supports your students to succeed throughout their studies and school testing.

We also offer various seasonal environmental education programs for all preschool to elementary school grades.  Animal Homes & Habitats, aquatic studies, animal adaptations, birds, signs of fall/spring, and so much more! On-site and outreach programs are available.  Check it out!

Our popular Introduction to Beekeeping course is offered from February to August. This hands-on course will teach sustainable beekeeping practices and techniques that covers a year in the life of a honey bee.
