Virtual School Outreach Programs

Ernie Miller Nature Center is now offering virtual programming to enhance your classroom or remote learning experience. 

Choose from offerings that include live animals or first person historical interpretation. All of our programs are presented by Park Naturalists, Outdoor Education Specialists, or Park Police Officers. Your students will get to interact live with these professionals and ask questions. We also still offer live programs in-person in your classroom if preferred and it is allowed in your school.
