Metroparks will help you get outdoors, learn new skills and explore your natural and cultural history in northwest Ohio. Bring your class to us or we can come to you! Programs are designed to connect students to nature through hands-on discovery of concepts tied to Ohio’s Learning Standards. We also have opportunities to enhance your Project Based Learning units through authenticity, public products, and content expert speakers. If field trip costs are a barrier, the Nature Express fund can provide up to 60% of the cost of bus transportation to Chapter 1 schools where 60% or more of the students are eligible for free or reduced lunches.
Never stop discovering new and exciting things in your parks! We provide engaging educational opportunities for any age through outdoor skills programs, nature studies, presentations, and more. Scouts, businesses, child cares, home schools, community organizations, and private groups can all enjoy these adventures.
