Connect with the natural world through art and science discovery programs


Dear Families and Friends,


Strawtown will be suspending all of its programs until the public health advisory lifts. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out:


In the meantime, a Strawtown Families-at-Home Activity Guide will be launched. This is being designed for engaging the family in nature grounding experiences, through learning outdoors, and making art with home materials, bringing the joy of Nature, Art, and Science learning into your home. Watch for the launch next week.


We already miss our Strawtown Families and look forward to sharing our teachings and activities with you via our website platform!


All the Best,
The Strawtown Team
