School Programs  

To schedule your class visit: 

Call the Waterman Center at 607-625-2221 or email:  info AT

Each school year, Waterman naturalists examine our programs to make sure they fit within the school curriculum needs. Each of our off-site programs is re-evaluated to ensure that we present the type of quality programs we have become known for over the years.

Scheduling Information: 

Please call Waterman soon to arrange for your class to visit. If you are unsure as to which class would be best for your group, we will be glad to make suggestions, or to custom-make a program just for you. (To check our availability, visit our Calendar of Events page.)


In School Visits: 

Waterman Center recognizes that it is often difficult for schools to come out to Waterman. With this in mind, several of the programs listed can be taken to your school. An additional mileage fee will be added for in-school presentations.

Waterman Center's Wildlife Refuges:
