We have a passion for nature that we are excited to share with people of all ages! Our inquiry-based programs promote exploration and curiosity. We know you learn best when you can directly engage, ask questions, and observe the answers for yourself. Here, everyone is invited to be a scientist!

Field Trips

We are ready to connect your students with nature through exploratory, place-based learning! We have a variety of grade-specific programs to choose from for pre-k through high school, all tailored to meet the South Carolina Science Standards. Perfect for public, private, charter, and homeschool groups.

Other Education Programs


Summer Camp

Our immersive summer camp is attended by middle school students nominated for both economic need and an aptitude for science and nature. Each student is offered a full scholarship to attend. Research shows nature-based experiences like those provided during summer camp have the potential to create an outsized and long-lasting impact.


Community Programs

Conestee Nature Preserve is committed to providing the community with opportunities for education, enrichment, and outright fun! Programs vary in theme and length. Join us for a night hike, birding excursion, build a rain barrel, learn to identify trees, and so many more. Each season brings new opportunities!


Nature Discovery

(Preschool - Middle School)

We offer Nature Discovery for Preschool (formerly Knee-High Naturalists) through Middle School, each with activities designed to instill a lifelong love of nature and allow students to engage hands on. Visit our Youth Events and read more!
“Isn’t that the making of a little scientist? Curiosity, asking questions, not getting the right answer, deciding to find out for yourself, making a mistake, not giving up, and learning patience”
