The Wildcat Hills homeschool programs will meet once a month at 10am MT at the Wildcat Hills Nature Center. Certified staff will lead various programs each month that will showcase a different theme; focusing on ecosystems, animals, adaptations, and habitats found only in western Nebraska. Activities will focus hands-on learning and observations, targeted to your students’ learning.
These programs will be conducted rain or shine, so be prepared for the unpredictable Nebraska weather! A valid Nebraska Game and Park Entry Permit will be required for this FREE program. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
