Explore the Nature's Classroom outdoor "learning laboratory" at 'Woods, Water, and Wildlife' open house event: Sat.-Sun., April 9-10

Their website states more about the program:

Nature's Classroom is in fact an actual educational classroom where students participate in an interactive environmental studies program in the real Florida environment. Nature's Classroom is a learning laboratory in nature and artificial enhancements are greatly downplayed.

Through a three-day hands-on experience, students study the complex, dynamic ecosystem surrounding the Hillsborough River. They hear about the challenges facing the environment and learn how the health of the river affects all of us by influencing things such as our drinking water supply. Most importantly, students learn how their actions now and in the future can impact the environment and our community.

A $5 donation per car is requested and admission is free. See the Nature’s Classroom website for more information and directions.

Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, April 10, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 13100 Verges Road, Thonotosassa (just 1.5 miles east of I-75 of the Fletcher Avenue exit). For more information, please call 813-987-6969.
