Ijams Nature Center Offers Online Options for At-Home Fun, Learning
If you’re looking for fun things to learn or do while you’re at home, Ijams Nature Center is here to help.
While the Ijams Visitor Center has closed and all programs have been canceled in response to COVID-19, the staff continues to share educational resources and information to educate, inform and inspire.
The nature center has launched a new Ijams E-Learning Station on its website. The new page features a variety of scavenger hunts for kids, tips on composting or creating pollinator gardens, and more.
Ijams will continue to add new information to the page, located at https://www.ijams.org/ijams-e-learning.
The staff also is sharing ways to engage with and learn about nature on Ijams’ Facebook (@ijamsnaturecenter) and Instagram (@ijamsnaturecenter) pages.
