Broaden your understanding and experience with nature by visiting Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear Township. The nature center offers a multitude of activities for all ages to participate in, including fee-based programs, free programs and group/organized group programs.
The fee-based programs include Second Friday Homeschool, where they offer homeschool students two-hour courses on topics such as science, social studies, art and recreation, and Frogs & Polliwogs, where a story time will be followed by an outdoor excursion and activities that relate to the story.
The free programs include discovery walks, drop-in discovery stations, meet the gardener, dragonfly monitor training and Tamarack Nature Center Photography Club. And the group programs entail summer field trips and outreach programs, as well as school-year environmental education programs.
Outside of the structured programs, Tamarack Nature Center provides trails to wander, a garden, and their Discovery Hollow Nature Play Area. This fun-filled spot offers materials to build a tree fort, climb the cliffs, make a dam and learn how water flows, and a whole lot more.
