Resources for Families

There is no shortage of family fun and adventures to be had in nature. PEPtBO’s Get Out! Kids’ Club will help your children discover all kinds of ways to explore and appreciate the natural world around them.

You don’t need to go far to find it, just step outside – nature is waiting for your family to come out and play.

LOOK HERE for a growing library of activities and projects that encourage connecting with nature. Step outside to charm a snail, birdwatch, or go on a mini safari. The library also includes lists of citizen scientist websites and many other resources. Enjoy! Explore!
