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!
