Nature Explorers!

Join us on Saturday for our Nature Explorers program!

Nature Explorers is a drop-off environmental education program series that focuses on specific lessons to inspire students to connect with nature through interactive guided hikes, planetarium shows, environmental arts and crafts, and interactive roleplaying games and activities.

Nature Explorers is for children ages 5-10, and runs from 9:00-11:00 am.

Tickets are $10 each, and must be purchased in advance by using the link below.

Nature Explorers is limited to 15 children per day, please be aware that this program may sell out!


We strongly recommend all visitors to CNCP (ages 2 and up) wear masks inside of buildings or when social distancing cannot be maintained.

We have also modified certain procedures to reduce the sharing of items (such as craft supplies) between children and reduce physical contact. Our programs are designed to take place almost entirely outside, where children will have lots of fresh air and space to spread out!

If you have any questions, have a problem during the registration process, or would like more information, please email

I have read the description of the Nature Explorers Program experience offered at Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium and understand that drop-off time is 8:45-8:55am, pickup time 11:00-11:15am. Late pickups after 11:15am will be charged by the 10-min increment ($5 for every 10 minutes past the designated pick-up time). I also understand that activities will be involved in my child's camp program; I find them acceptable for my child’s participation. Recognizing the educational benefits of this program to my child, and acknowledging that it is completely voluntary, I, the parent/guardian, do hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium for any loss, injury or damage resulting directly or indirectly from my child's participation in this program. Pictures of the program, not identifying my child, may be used online to illustrate program activities and promote future programs. My acceptance and submission of this form constitutes my digital signature (paper waiver will be signed on the first day of program).
