Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. This program combines well with Signs of the Season, Homes are Habitats, and Indian Pathways. Because of our large trail system and full-day option, we can serve up to 130 students for many programs. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher-naturalist to 12 to 14 students.

Fee Information: $7.50 per child; $7.50 per adult.
