Family Nature Programs

The Sands Point Preserve Conservancy offers nature education programs and seasonal celebrations for families throughout the year. Children of all ages are welcome.

Our unique programs include STEM and STEAM curriculum-based activities, so children are discovering facts and concepts that relate directly to their studies in school while having fun at the Preserve.

Programs take place inside the historic mansions and the Phil Dejana Learning Center & Outdoor Classroom; weather permitting, we also venture out to the Great Lawn, gardens, woods, beach and pond for hands-on learning experiences. Please check the location for specific programs at the Gatehouse when you arrive. Adult supervision is required for all family programs.

Most programs are discounted with a 12-month membership. Join online!
