WHERE: 190 Lord Stirling Rd, Basking Ridge
(908) 766-2489

Join the Gang!

Here at the Environmental Education Center our “gang” makes us think of smiling, happy, muddy kids.

The Tree House Gang is a weekly series for children ages 3-5 that meets in their own special space called the “Tree House”. There they learn about habitats, food chains, wildlife, weather, and so much more through games, experiments, storybooks, and their favorite part, hiking.  Most of their time is spent exploring the Great Swamp and all its various habitats, searching for animal clues, oblivious to the weather.  Yes, they can get very muddy but they love every minute of it.

Once a “gang member” graduates, they can join KinderNats, a program designed and geared for children five to seven years old who love to be outdoors. This afterschool series will get them outside to study science and explore the natural world. These junior naturalists will be engaged through hiking, activities, and more.

Too young for all of the above? Then join us for The Young Explorers Club, another series designed for infant to five year olds with parent that focuses on developing their five senses. Parents can leave with ideas to explore nature close to home.
