How does an egg become a frog? How do caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies? Students will learn about the life cycles and visit the pond to catch tadpoles, froglets, and frogs and the meadow to look for signs of butterflies. Please note-all stages of the animals' life cycles may not be present at all times of the year.
Riverbend Environmental Education Center sits on a 30-acre preserve in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. We teach environmental principles to children in Southeastern Pennsylvania through a direct connection with nature, inspiring respect for our natural world, and action as aware, responsible and caring citizens. All of our programs focus on engaging children in the practices of science, including asking questions, making observations, and collecting data.
Some of our programs take place at neighboring preserves located within a short drive of Riverbend's main campus.
Our programs typically begin at 10AM, but we are happy to be flexible to meet our schools' needs. If you would like your program to begin earlier or later, please let us know!
Please note- Riverbend has a minimum program fee of $125 per group.
