DMV EcoAdventures

DMV EcoAdventures, through hands-on, minds on learning experiences in local parks and places in DC, Maryland and Virginia, works with groups of kids to learn and to explore nature. DMV EcoAdventures believes kids deserve learning experiences centered around their local environment, where they can express their curiosity with peers and a caring adult.

About Outdoor Education Classes

Learning pods can request a weekly class. Occasionally DMV EcoAdventures creates sessions at a set time that individuals can directly enroll in. All classes are held outside either in a family’s backyard or in a local park/area. Classes are typically between an hour and a half to three hours each week and run for 6-8 week sessions. DMV EcoAdventures typically works with students between Kindergarten and 6th grade. We take Covid-19 seriously and we have protocols that children, families and staff must adhere to in order to ensure we are helping to flatten the curve.
