Education Programs


Many school groups visit the Louisville Nature Center and have a great time all while learning about our natural environment. All of our programs align to the Next Generation Science Standards.

Plan your fall, winter, or spring field trip to Louisville Nature Center. School classes, scouts, nature enthusiasts, senior citizens, and home-school groups are welcome to spend a couple of hours learning about the native flora and fauna of our area. Spots fill up quickly–often months in advance–so contact us early!

LNC staff are always happy to work with you to design a program that meets your specific needs!

For information on our education programs or to schedule a program, please contact our education coordinator Tank Percentie at 502-458-1328.
