Sacramento Splash offers two standards-based, environmental science programs for teachers of grades 4-12. We also offer classroom presentations for grades 3-6. For more information about Splash’s school programs, please click on the links below.
You don’t have to be a student to participate in Splash programs! 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 contact Lu-Anne Spencer-Hartle.
At Splash we believe in experiential learning in nature. Artwork is a natural avenue for kids to connect with the living world around them.
