2017 After School Nature Club

Durango Nature Studies offers nature based after-school enrichment programs for kids in K-2nd grades.  This is the perfect choice for kids that love nature and science.  We will be offering 5 sessions in 2017 winter/spring on a variety of topics, including lots of time exploring outside.
