Children & Youth Education
Citizens for Conservation offers nature-based programs designed to educate children ages four and older in the greater Barrington area to discover their role in "saving living space for living things." We offer children from pre-school through sixth grade, along with their parents, the opportunity to learn about the natural world at home with the Junior Naturalist Home Education Series.
