Homeschool Programs

Bring the concepts you teach at home to life! The Backcountry Wilderness Area provides a monthly close-to-home opportunity for exploration and learning in a natural setting. Each month we offer a different environmental or life science topic. All of our programs emphasize exploration and have a hands-on approach to scientific inquiry.

You can coordinate 6-20 students from your homeschool network and we can arrange any of these programs for your group at an agreed upon date and time. For more information or to schedule a private homeschool program, contact us at 303-471-7054.
