Summer Nature Experience 2022

Our nature experiences now include children from kindergarten to teen-agers!  And it all starts on July 12!  Fun, outdoors, and filled with nature.  Your child will go home tired, maybe a little dirty, and full of stories every day.

Learn to Connect.

The Center for Environmental Education & Discovery, or CEED, is a nature center that inspires connections to the joys of nature through education and experience. CEED serves children, youth and adults through public nature programs and events, school and community-based environmental education, conservation projects, live animal ambassadors and more!
