Sweetbriar Nature Center Educational Programs

Sweetbriar Nature Center offers educational opportunities for all ages, either at our nature preserve or at your facility. Whether you want your students to learn about metamorphosis and butterflies, explore the treasures of the tropical rain forest or examine predator/prey relationships, Sweetbriar has the program for you! Our programs are designed to involve participants through the use of live animals, hands-on activities and interactive experiences. It is our hope that all visitors will gain a better understanding and respect for the natural world. Programs are designed by educators to enhance and supplement the life sciences guidelines of the New York State science curriculum. Supplemental materials are provided both before and after each program.

See program descriptions for more information. The programs are listed by grade level. These are suggested grade levels. If you are interested in booking a program that is listed for a different age group, please contact our Program Coordinator and we will work with you. We can also tailor programs to your needs.
