Classes for Homeschoolers

Because of concerns about Covid-19, the Ansonia Nature Center is running outdoor programming only and asking participants of those programs to practice social distancing and wear masks.
The Nature Center building is closed and all indoor programs are cancelled until further notice.

We will begin offering a few small, in person, outside classes.
