The Recreation Department at Poricy Park offers a range of science and colonial history programs for preschool and elementary aged students. All programs emphasize hands-on activities and “doing” the things they have learned. And, of course, substantial time outdoors where nature provides a dynamic classroom. We are sensitive to your class’ unique needs. Please reach out for more information on any program.

All start times are adjustable to fit your school’s travel needs. Prices are charged by class of a max of 25 students. Classes over 25 students will be subject to additional charges. Most programs are only offered seasonally. There is no lunchroom, but outdoor picnic facilities are available and winter classes eat in their classroom. There is a gift shop in the Nature Center for post trip shopping (except 4-hour programs).  The Nature Center is ADA accessible, but the Murray Farmhouse is not (a historic building). Programs run rain or shine. If weather is prohibitive, programs are adapted and use alternate inside activities. Fossil hunts are rescheduled if stream conditions are hazardous.
