Programs for All Ages!

Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve features programs and activities for individuals of all ages including popular preschool programs and weekend family programs.  In order for our naturalists to ensure the best program possible and to plan for the correct amount of supplies we require you to preregister for our programs.                                           

Our current program guide for classes and events from January 2014 through June 2014 is available for viewing and printing by clicking here.  


We are now offering more online registration options. Please note that our online registration software cannot calculate discounts for multi-class purchases.  Any advertised discounts still need to be handled through our offices and that is noted on each class it applies to in our online class listing.

Visit our Classes & Events page and click on a class you are interested in.  If a grey box that says "Register" is visible, you may click on it and register online for that class using a credit card. 

Please be patient with us as we transition to this online registration format - as we know there will be some glitches along the way. 

Advance registration is required for all of our programs and events.

If you prefer not to use online registration, a paper version of our registration form is below.

We also offer school field trips and programs.

We offer a wide variety of programs for public and private elementary schools in the region as well as daycare and after school groups.  Thousands of school children participate in Dinosaur Hill field trips each year.  Whether your class visits the preserve to dip for insects in the creek, use instruments to t the soil or you have us bring our portable planetarium to wow your students you are sure to have a great experience.  Dinosaur Hill programs are hands-on and will get your students enthused about science and build on the lessons they are learning in the classroom.  All programs are specifically designed to meet the Michigan curriculum standards and benchmarks. Click here for a list of field trip/program offerings.
