Join Ripley this fall for our After-School Programs! During the month of October, the Conservancy will be hosting two unique education programs taking place on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 pm.
Students in grades 3-8 are invited to join us for these memorable outdoor experiences, which encourage students to explore the world around them during our changing seasons. Throughout each program, students will participate in environmental-themed games, crafts, and learning activities, all while exploring the Conservancy's 16+ acres of protected wetlands, fields, and forests.
Sponsored by the Litchfield Education Foundation, each program is available for only $38 per student. Space is limited to 5 students per Program to ensure a safe, student-focused environment, so reserve your spot now!
