EcoKids Classes


Our EcoKids classes are designed to encourage observing, exploring, problem solving and creating (STEM activities).  At ABNC, our goal is to nurture curiosity, passion, and give children the opportunity to observe nature in action.
Join our EcoKids classes either Wednesday or Friday from 9:30-11:30; Topics are the same on Wednesdays and Fridays of the same week.  This is a drop off class and is for children only 3 to 6 years old who are fully potty trained.  

Please bring a Snack and Water for your child!

Non Member Fee per child $12;  Member Fee per child $10

Payment at the time of reservation is required.  Please call 713 274 2668 to reserve your child's spot.

Cancellation Policy: 

Payment of fees is needed to complete your registration and is non-refundable unless the class is cancelled by Armand Bayou Nature Center (ABNC) staff.   If ABNC cancels for any reason, you will be given the option of applying the fees to another program or a refund.

If you must cancel, please call Kathy at 713 274 2668 before 9:00am on the day of the scheduled class.  You will receive a credit voucher for either another class or it can be applied to another ABNC program, gift shop item or admission fee.  Any non-attendance or cancellation after 9:00am on the day of the class will result in loss of payment.  ABNC does not give refunds for these classes.
