Sturgeon City Programs
Part of Sturgeon City's mission is to help foster an awareness, appreciation and understanding of our local environment. In doing this, our goal is to help kids get into the outdoors by providing opportunities to make science come to life. Whether it is exploring Sturgeon City or creating wacky science experiments, participants respond enthusiastically to our interactive programming. When they are having fun while learning, children carry these lessons far into the future.
Marsh Madness is here! Come join us as we explore the salt marsh around Sturgeon City. Students will get up close and personal with salt marsh plants and animals and see what it's like to be a critter living in the marsh. They will experience what it takes to survive and find food and even try their hand at catching their own salt marsh invertebrate. Click here to for more information!
