Learn at Bernheim
Resources and opportunities to help you learn –
wherever you are.
Bernheim offers opportunities for learners of all ages and levels to engage with and connect to nature. We inspire our learners to develop a personal lifelong relationship with nature through programs that are fun, creative, and playful while being solidly grounded in the natural sciences. Our nature-based educators — some of whom first connected to nature at Bernheim as children themselves — use storytelling, hands-on science discovery, art, music, crafts, and other ways to meet our mission of connecting people with nature.
Though our buildings remain closed to the public due to COVID-19 precautions, we are once again offering limited safe and socially-distanced outdoor educational programming along with digital resources designed to enhance your visit to Bernheim. Participants must follow safety protocols, and group size for educational events is currently limited to 15.
Bernheim makes every effort to make our programs affordable to all, but we know that sometimes that still isn’t enough. If you would like to participate in a program but find it beyond your reach financially, please contact Kristin Faurest to learn about available scholarships.
