Several times throughout the year, we open our doors and invite
the public to learn with us as we explore the amazing natural
spaces that surround us.
Splash provides private guided vernal pool tours and nature
programs for scout troops, daycares, Nature Bowl teams, and other
groups of children and/or adults. We offer flexible
scheduling and programming tailored to the needs of your
particular group. For more information or to schedule a
private program, please
