Homeschool Fridays

Program Overview

If you are a parent or coordinator to Homeschool students, Environmental Volunteers invites you to participate in our monthly hands-on science programs at our EcoCenter in Palo Alto.

Our programs are specifically designed for homeschool learners from ages 6-11 who are interested in natural sciences. Discover our special interactive program with lessons about marine ecology, forest and foothills ecology, water conservation, power generation, and more!

Docents will lead students through fun, hands-on educational activities, and students will have the opportunity to ask questions and explore topics at their own pace.
