CCEEC offers a wide variety of
educational opportunities for students from Pre-K through high school
and college. Your group can come to us for a day of fun and adventurous
learning, or we can bring the learning to you in the form of classroom
lectures and school assemblies with live animals, or schoolyard
explorations in search of trees, insects, fungi, and animal signs.
When booking a
program with CCEEC, book early. Calling as far in advance as possible
ensures that your requested date will be reserved, and will also
provide the opportunity to schedule a rain/snow date.

Visits to CCEEC, either
with your school or on your own, can be more enjoyable
if you remember a few
simple things. Dress for the
Many of the activities at the center take place outside,
and we often find ourselves hiking no mater what!
Check the weather!
If rain is predicted on the day of you visit, bring a rain jacket or
poncho. Umbrellas don't
work very well here.
Always wear proper
for the outdoors. You will be walking in dirt, wet grass, sand,
and MUD! Please
don't wear your best sneakers, sandals, or heels. It's also a good
idea to tie, zipper, buckle, or Velcro those shoes closed. The mud
here at CCEEC is known to have collected more than a few
shoes. Prepare well and you won't be going home in socks!
What to Wear
• Proper clothes for the weather and time of year.
• A hat to keep the sun off your head or to stay warm
• Old 'play' shoes
• Bright colors
What to Bring
• A notebook and pencil
• A disposable camera so
you can share memories of your trip
• Allergy, or other, medication you may need (your teacher
should have this)
• An eco-friendly lunch
Things Not to Bring

distracting and easily lost.

Every year students
bring thousands of pounds of trash to CCEEC with their
lunches. This trash is filling up our landfills (dumps) at an
incredible rate. Soon there will be nowhere to put it all!
You can help by doing a few simple things:
• Use a reusable
bag/box instead of a
paper or plastic bag
• Use reusable containers
instead of sandwich bags
• Bring cloth napkins,
• Pack a drink that comes
in a reusable or recyclable
• Avoid prepackaged
tray meals that produce
lots of trash.
• Use a real metal spoon
or fork, not plastic.
Educational opportunities don’t fly south just
because it gets cold out. There are many reasons to book CCEEC visits
or in-school assemblies during the winter. Ever go looking for animal
tracks in the snow with a 4th grader? We have!
