Programs

Programs are offered for groups large and small, for adults and children ages 3 and up.

In-Person (Outreach) Programs

Host IREEC at your site for a one-of-a-kind program for your group or event, with live hawks and owls. Or, help your preschoolers learn more about reptiles with a visit from a turtle and snake. – We travel to a variety of facilities for programs, appearances or exhibits.

For Scout Groups

IREEC offers programs based on some of the outdoor, nature-based Scout Badges for Girl and Boy Scouts. Programs can be held at a local park or other locations, and include live animals, nature walks, activities and small projects. Please contact us to discuss how we can customize a program for your Scouts.

Virtual programs start at $45 for 30 minutes.

In-person presentation fees vary based on the program needs such as content and length. Please contact us to discuss options.
