Discovery Days is a healthy outdoor educational opportunity for children ages 7-12 to get outside and explore the Juneau area. Similar to our Outdoor Explorers summer day camp, these events are offered throughout the school year when students are out of school during Teacher In-service Days, Parent Teacher Conference Days, holidays, and seasonal school breaks.
Register for our next Discovery Day! Discovery Southeast is offering a Discovery Day for children ages 7-12 on Thursday, February 14, Friday, February 15, and Tuesday, February 19. Join DSE naturalists and friends for some nature inspired fun!
Thursday and Friday, we are headed to Eagle Beach for some shoreline adventures. We also plan to bring some nordic skis and snowshoes, weather depending! Drop off will be at Harborview at 8:30 and Riverbend at 9 AM. Pick up will be at Riverbend at 3:30 and Harborview by 4 PM.
Tuesday, we will head out to Lena Point for some hiking, and visit NOAA headquarters for some sheltered fun along the way! Drop off and pick up times will be the same as mentioned above.
