ENC to offer Nature Camp to children of essential workers

The Environmental Nature Center (ENC) is offering its Nature Camp to children of Essential Workers as defined by the State of California from June 1-19. Nature Camp provides quality science education in an outdoor setting. ENC Nature Camp emphasizes experiential learning. Campers spend most of their time outside, having a great time observing nature up close using tools like binoculars, magnifying lenses and microscopes. Science concepts are introduced in a fun environment, with crafts, games and nature activities.
