Lake Katherine offers fun learning activities for the entire family.
Specific programs, held at the Frank Passarelli Nature Center and
preserve grounds, are available after school and on evenings
Lake Katherine is the perfect year-round fieldtrip destination.
Sessions offer different lessons and experiences, with naturalist-led
programs lasting from one to two hours. Our naturalist is
always willing to accommodate Scout troops, and leaders should
call in advance with badge requirements. If you prefer, simply
bring the family at your convenience and enjoy a self-guided tour
of our nature center and grounds.
