HOMESCHOOL


The spring session of our homeschool program will dive into the world of our flighted neighbors, the birds. Situated along the Atlantic flyway, New Jersey is a wonderful place to experience a diverse array of species and witness spring migration. During this active outdoor program, students will learn how to spot and identify local species of birds, decode bird behavior, analyze physical adaptations, study nesting behavior using our bluebird boxes, find important bird habitats in the forest, and more. Our goal is to have students learn the biology of birds in each class, while discovering the wonder and excitement of getting to know the birds that live all around us.


Programs will be held outdoors on our beautiful 152 acre property in the Highlands region of northern New Jersey. Our outdoor facilities are ideally suited to outdoor learning, and include a picnic grove, recreation field, covered pavilion, fire circle, hiking trails, raingarden, butterfly garden and a brook.​
