Stella Maris Environmental Research, through their Stella's Eco Stars, has an educational program for children and their parents! These classes encourage environmental exploration and expansion of young minds. Stella's Eco Stars Explorers Program is a multi-age program allowing families to enjoy time outside in our local ecosystems while learning. There are multiple opportunities to explore each month, most events occurring 1-2 times per week. Younger children will enjoy exploring, touching, seeing and smelling while older children and parents will be given an opportunity to create their own field guide, learn about conservation and navigate research techniques. This program is a great supplement for any homeschooling families, pre-schooling children, and school-age learners as an after school engagement opportunity. Baby wearing moms please join us to expose your youngest citizen scientist to the wonders of nature, which is good for moms and babies!
Locations will vary based on the program offered. Please see the sign up dates to determine which event is best for you and your child. We have age-based events- ages 5 & up and 5 & under, but please feel free to bring your little or older ones along as well.
