February Vacation at Joppa Flats: Take to the Skies

Come learn about birds like Quetzals, Snowy Owls, Hawks and Hummingbirds at Joppa Flats Center!

Joppa Flats Education Center vacation programs offer a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities while we keep minds active and hands busy during school break. Each session offers a different theme, with art activities, experiments, group games, and scheduled family presentations for everyone. It's free-flow learning for the whole family. Come once or make it a multiple-day adventure; drop in for an hour or stay all day for a vacation activity that suits your family schedule. Families are encouraged to dress in their 'birdy best' clothes and children can bring their favorite stuffed bird toy for the presentations!
