Home School Science

Add environmental education enrichment to your home school curriculum by joining us for our monthly home school science series!

Your student will learn in the 197-acre outdoor classroom of Bristol Woods County Park/Pringle Nature Center through hands-on activities and exploration of our natural world.

Registration Policies

All students must pre-register as class size is limited to 15 students in each grade grouping and we also need to ensure there are enough supplies. Registration and payment can be done by the semester or the year, cash, check or credit card. Your enrollment in the program is not complete until your payment is received.


2018/19 School Year Registration Deadlines: Fall semester and full year is due by September 1 and Spring semester is due by January 2. No phone registrations will be accepted. If you are going to drop off your registration form and payment in person, please call ahead to ensure someone is available to help you.
