Introducing The Rattlesnake Conservancy's newest education program, STEM Station: Science in the Great Outdoors!
Every month, our team of dedicated counselors and scientists will embark on a great adventure, leading children ages 8-13 through Florida's natural ecosystems. While on these adventures, children will have safe, meaningful interactions with native flora and fauna while taking part in activities that will expand their knowledge on the great outdoors and natural sciences.
These programs will take place in various parks and natural areas throughout Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. John's counties, including Tree Hill Nature Center in Jacksonville, FL.
