Educational Group Tours

Under the guidance of a staff naturalist, your students will explore the fields, forests, and wetlands of Fenner Nature Center to observe the lessons of nature first hand. Ask about the possibility of an extended day program so you can work with your students in the arts, social studies, language arts, or other areas of your curriculum, while we conduct the science lesson.

Our programs meet the Michigan Educational Standards for your students in the areas of Science and Social Studies.

Let us work with you to find a program that will fit into your current curriculum.

The programs suggest topics, but we will be glad to adjust programs to different grade levels or work with you to develop a customized program for your classroom.

Ask about our Outreach programs which brings Fenner Nature Centure to your classroom.

  • $30 per preschool classroom for onsite programs
  • $40 per elementary classroom for onsite programs.
  • $50 per classroom for outreach programs (maximum 10 miles)
  • $60 per classroom for outreach programs (maximum 30 miles)

Here at Lansing Parks and Recreation we strive to provide all of the Lansing community with quality recreational opportunities. One way we do this is through our youth scholarship program. In the economic climate of today we are finding more families in need of this financial assistance. Your donation will help us ensure we are able to offer scholarships to Lansing youth who request assistance.
