Events and Programs Overview

Throughout the year, MNC presents events and programs for adults, children, and families.  Most of the events are nature related and allow us to learn more about respecting our environment and the awesomeness of nature.  Many of the programs are participatory and get us out into the great outdoors.  The programs change year to year, though some favorites are repeated.  Some examples of events are:

  • Pond dipping
  • Prowling for owls
  • Nature hikes, in all seasons and daytime and nighttime
  • Lectures for teens and adults
  • Crafts – seasonal and mostly nature related, often accompanied by stories and nature facts
  • Song and/or story fests
  • Visits by zoos and animal handlers
  • And a perennial favorite, the Midsummer’s Night Festival

See the table below for a preview of what’s coming up at the Center.

Events will be posted in Eventbrite approximately two weeks before the event date.  All registration will be handled by Eventbrite.
