Nature’s Little Explorers
Trail School

The environmental education team at Baltimore Woods Nature Center has designed several program series specifically for homeschooling families and those looking to add an outdoor learning component to their week.

for ages 3 & 4

Nature’s Little Explorers is a recurring series of mini adventures throughout the year, designed especially for preschoolers ages three and four. Using imagination, storybooks, crafts, and a well-developed sense of adventurous play, this fun-filled program aims to connect children with the out of doors at an early age. The programs are carefully designed to balance developmentally appropriate learning with the innate sense of wonder and joy that young children have for the natural world.

Trail School
or ages 5 – 13


This program is designed to focus on learning through an intentional blend of guided activities, play and child-led exploration with the guidance of a naturalist who knows the preserve and the skills to encourage discovery, inquiry, experimentation, and imagination. These monthly series run weekly on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Rain, snow, or sunshine – we will happily go outside!
