Spring Nature Kids Cooperative

  • The Homestead Education Center Starkville, MS 39759 (map)

Do you have children who love the outdoors? Come join us at the Homestead each Wednesday from 10AM - 12PM for some nature play! The nature scape play area will be open for children to climb, jump, make believe and explore. An organized activity will be led for children interested in participating.

Whether you're a mom with a toddler who needs some fresh air, or a homeschool family of six, you're invited to come socialize in this enjoyable learning environment. Our activities will be focused on nature, science, and seasonally inspired crafts. 

The weekly Nature Kids Co-op is open to Homestead members with children. The local membership of $9.95/month covers the entire family for the weekly nature kids co-op, all Homestead Education Center online resources, AND Homestead monthly events. Become a Member and Join Us!
