NOLA Nature School Summer Camp

In 2017 NOLA Nature School put on its first ever Nature Camp.

Each morning for five days the children returned to the forest where they spent time closely observing and interacting with nature. They used naturalist guides to identify plants and animals, listened for bird calls, built homes for fairies, gnomes, and roly-polys--all while challenging themselves, making friends, and having fun. Check out the sections below to get a closer look at NOLA Nature Camp.
