DiscoverE Family Adventures: Wild Survival! (Week 3: A Hunt for a Home)
Families: take a walk on the wild side this summer and explore Jennings Environmental Education Center during the latest four-week series of DiscoverE Family Adventures: Wild Survival! During each week’s adventures families will participate in introductory activities with Jennings staff, then complete an adventure guide full of explorations and investigations, all aided by a kit full of tools like bug viewers, nets, and more.

July 11, 13, or 15: Water Quest
July 18, 20, or 22: A Hunt for a Home
