Homeschool Program - Ohio Bird Sanctuary

Home School Program


 The Ohio Bird Sanctuary offers programming for home school students,

and we would love to have your students join us once a month for some outdoor fun! 


About the Program:

  • Students Kindergarten through 12th grade are welcome to participate in our Home School Program. Kindergartners must be 5 years old by September 1, 2024.
  • Each month we will explore a different topic through games, hikes, crafts, animal encounters, and more!
  • We try to spend as much time as possible outside! Always come dressed for the weather!
  • Parent Policy: To promote socialization and maximum participation, we have always encouraged parents to leave their children in the care of the OBS staff during the Home School Program. While parents are, of course, welcome to stay on grounds during the class, they will not be allowed to stay with the group during the class. Thank you for your trust and understanding.
  • Each lesson is taught by trained outdoor educators who are certified through Project WILD. Learn more about Project WILD here
