Teachers can conduct their own lessons while using the Naturalist Center’s collections and equipment. Museum staff provides room supervision. We recommend that teachers visit the Center before bringing their class. This program is ideal for “Envirothon” teams, scout troops, homeschool groups and science clubs.
The Naturalist Center provides visitors access to an extensive collection of specimens for individual or class research or for general interest. Collections include birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, insects, plants, fossils, rocks, minerals and more. Reference books, computers, CD-ROMs, microscopes and other lab equipment are available. Staff can provide assistance with self-directed exploration in the Naturalist Center.
Scheduling information: You must register for programs at least six weeks in advance of your group’s visit. To schedule this program, contact Cindy Lincoln, Coordinator of the Naturalist Center, at 919.707.9269, or submit an online Scheduling Request Form.
