About Fresh Air Family

We take education out into Nature's biggest classroom: The Great Outdoors. Exploring outside is serious science learning in

award-winning programs! Join us to walk in the woods, hike a trail, canoe in a stream, or slog

through a bog. We will be looking for birds, flowers, salamanders, stars, cave formations, bugs, rocks, and all of the wonders in our beautiful world.
