Nature Explorers!

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 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!

I have read the description of the Nature Explorers program experience offered at Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium and understand the information listed above. Pickups after the end of the program will be charged by the 5-min increment ($5 for every 5 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 constitute my digital signature (a paper waiver will be signed on the first day of the program).
