See List of Classes Below: All these classes are informative and fun! They are all interdisciplinary classes. They all relate to nature, culture, community, and more. They all cover similar things, but each class focuses on a different aspect (science and or art and or history).  Some classes are especially for younger kids.  Some for older kids. Yet, adults will enjoy all of them. One class is on a weekend, for those who prefer weekend classes.  This 2018 spring semester, most classes are held mostly in April and May.  The weekend class is in January and February.
