Programs, Lessons, & Activities

Happy Dancing Turtle is dedicated to growing good stewards of the planet. Our educational programs are designed to foster a love of nature and encourage participants to become caretakers of the environment.


We offer a wide variety of educational experiences for ages Pre-K through adults with hands-on indoor/outdoor activities, informative workshops, family programming, guided field trips, and engaging lessons for classrooms, libraries, parks, and more! If you're interested in getting your classroom outdoors, we'd be happy to meet you at a school forest, local park, or other field trip destination.
