Enviromobile

@ Your School

Program information for the Enviromobile and Field Trips for Summer 2021 and the 2021-2022 school year is now available.  We will be offering virtual and limited in person programs for Summer 2021.  It is our hope that we will be able to offer in person field trips in the fall, but virtual options will be available.  Registration opens on April 23, 2021. 

We are working on converting as many of our programs as possible to virtual programs in order to continue to provide education.  Please call (219) 853-2420 and speak with one of our educators for available program information.
