Education Programs

Are you looking for an educational outlet for someone you know? The Dunes Center provides educational programs for a variety of age ranges and grade levels. Programs can be created for an in class presentation, community group, youth organization, scouts, day camps and service clubs.

“Our program leader was well informed on the subject of botany.  More importantly , independent of content knowledge, she had the ability to make connections and engage the students.  I am appreciative of the Dunes Center and the classes it provides for our students. Surely the knowledge learned will provide more enjoyment and expand the student’s curiosity beyond the four walls of a classroom.”
