ALBANY — Tin Mountain Conservation Center will be offering a winter-themed home-school series for students aged 8 to 12.
This Tin Mountain home-school series will run Wednesdays Jan. 8 through March 25 from 10 a.m. to noon for a total of 11 classes. There will be no class on Feb. 19.
Tin Mountain’s next home-school session will be focused on all things winter. Students will study topics such as animal and plant adaptations to survive in the cold and snow, animal tracking, winter weather, snow crystals and structure, fire and shelter building, solar ovens and more.
The program is a nature-focused, hands-on learning program, designed to teach through immersion in the outdoors.
A little time will be in the classroom, but the program will mostly use Tin Mountain’s extensive trail system at the conservation center as a way to get students out and learning.
Cost is $13 per class for Tin Mountain members and $15 per class for non-members. Sign up for the whole series by Jan. 8 and receive a discount. Tin Mountain member cost is $130 and non-member cost $150.
