For the Fall of 2020, CEED is offering a full line-up of in-person, outdoor, and online nature programs to keep nature and science connections alive. Guided by Ranger Eric Powers, classrooms and other groups will meet in real time to investigate phenomena found in our natural world. Biologist Ranger Eric, with 30+ years experience helping students love nature, creates a lively experience where children meet animal ambassadors and explore the nature of science by creating models and making connections.
Teachers – brings energy to science and biology lessons
Librarians – keep patrons connected to the library
Parents – spread this news to librarians and teachers to capture the interest of students, or join with other parents to add educational pizazz to your at-home schooling.

LIVE Animal Show: Wildlife Diversity
Learn from Ranger Eric as he introduces his Animal Ambassadors in-person or virtually. Discover where in the world they come from, special adaptations and more! Meet exotic bugs, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals!
Bobwhite Quail vs. Ticks Program
Learn about connections between once common Northern Bobwhite Quail, habitat loss, predation by cats, and the dramatic increase in ticks found on Long Island. Schools, libraries, scouts, towns, and volunteers are collaborating to naturally control ticks by hatching quail eggs and releasing the birds into the wild!
Traveling Rainforest Museum
Join us to discover the phenomena of the rainforest and its unique ecosystem through photos, live animals, videos and remarkable stories from our very own world-traveling Biologist, Ranger Eric!
What Makes A Mammal A Mammal?
Mammals are a diverse and fascinating group of animals, ranging in size from the smallest shrew to the Blue Whale. We investigate locomotion, body structure, biology, and more, with special appearances from live mammals!
The World of Birds
Special guests include live birds that join the presentation to emphasize various adaptations of our feathered friends. A detailed PowerPoint guides the adventure and provides close-up views, videos, and photos from around the world.
Building Food Webs at the Pond
Following the flow of energy from plants to animals, we also discover how humans get energy to fuel our daily lives. In addition to a mix of live animal ambassadors, video clips, and photos, during the presentation we bring in a bucket of actual pond water to see what critters we can catch, live on camera!
Conservation Projects & Citizen Science
This mini-course is designed for fun science and nature discovery from the convenience of your school, backyard, or local nature area. There is so much that kids can do outside to learn about nature, help your local plants and animals, and even contribute data to Citizen Science Projects like a real scientist!
