The nature center, which provides environmental learning experiences for Lake County school students and for home-schooled children throughout the region, has developed a spring-break program specifically designed for inquisitive children in grades three through five.

The program will take place from March 13 through March 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Registration is under way for the program, which is limited to 20 registrants. Fee for the weeklong program is $140 per child. Call 352.357.7536 or e-mail tlnc.director@gmail.com for more information or a registration packet.
