Field Trips-Now Offered Virtually!
The Nature Center is the City of Arvada's environmental education facility. We offer many school and group programs to engage kids with nature. Using the nature trails, wetland areas and prairie ecosystems to explore, we connect kids with Arvada's parks and better understand nature. Topics are grade-level appropriate and meet Colorado science standards.
The Nature Center also has 3,000 square feet, containing hands-on exhibits, wildlife displays, and classrooms. And, just outside is 25,000 square feet of a beautiful water-conserving demonstration garden. Visitors can discover native Colorado plants and wildlife both inside and out. You can visit the park on your self-guided adventure, or schedule a private virtual program/field trip with your group to accompany your independent explorations.
Not able to get your students or group online? Let's get together in your backyard or ours. Majestic View will work with you to design a program that fits your needs while including masks, physical distancing, temperature screening, and limited class sizes.
