Since 1974, Riverbend Environmental Education Center has been enriching the lives of children and families through engaging environmental education. From its beginnings as a quiet nature preserve, Riverbend has evolved to a thriving center for environmental education that touches the lives of nearly 19,000 people annually. Year-round exploration camp days are relaxed yet full of fun and learning, perfect for days off from school. Grounded in nature-based STEM education programs, children enjoy hikes, outdoor exploration, crafts, science experiments and hands-on activities. Our flexible program meets the needs of busy parents and curious children.
