Adult Classes and Field Studies
The Academy’s experienced educators and renowned scientists share their knowledge through engaging classes and exciting field studies for adults! Participate in current research by accompanying our scientists on field studies to collect bugs, identify fossils, or wade knee-deep in a stream to catch fish. If you would rather stay inside, take an intimate class supplemented by the Academy’s collections, archives, specimens, or even live animals!
Adult Classes are typically held at the Academy. We will provide details regarding the location of the classroom and what to bring to class in a confirmation letter upon registration.
Adult Field Studies are held off-site, and the location is based on each individual program. Transportation is not provided, so participants can arrive and depart at their own convenience. We will provide details on the study location, what to bring, how to dress, and essential contact information in a confirmation letter upon registration.
Adult classes and field studies are for individuals age 18 and older. Please leave children at home and come mingle with other adults!
To register, call our Reservations Department at 215-299-1060.
