Schedule a Program

Gorman Nature Center does educational programs by request. Please request your program at least one month in advance so that staff have time to plan your program and can be flexible with your desired dates. During our busy spring and fall seasons, it is recommended that you request your program 2-3 months prior to your desired program date.
