Project Nature with EcoElsa ages 10+

Our natural world has played a role in the clothes humans have worn since the beginning. Join a naturalist from EcoElsa to connect nature to current fashion through the making and ideas phases with things like grass weaving and making dyes from plants and creating designs based on nature. 

Gameschooling ages 5-9

Students will supplement their education in a variety of subjects by playing games.

Sexual Health Education - Seeing and Exploring Life's Future (SELF) Ages 10+

Class fee for this is extremely flexible. Also if this is the only class you are interested in we will waive the membership fee!

Each week of this class builds upon the previous week, so new students will have some catch-up work when starting the class. 

The Seeing and Exploring Life’s Future (SELF) Program has been committed to comprehensive, LGBTQIA+ affirming, medically accurate, and culturally relevant sexuality education since it began in 1985.
