Teacher Naturalist Training
New Classes Begin in the Spring of 2015 - Six consecutive Wednesdays starting March 11, 2015

Share your love of the natural world with the next generation! The Bucks County Audubon Society is looking for creative adults to serve as teacher naturalists at the Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center. Trained teacher naturalists assist BCAS educators with environmental education programs (such as field trips) for area school children. Experience with children and knowledge of science is a plus– but we are also happy to train motivated individuals with a desire to learn about Pennsylvania ecology. Some light hiking and lifting is required. Contact Diane Smith, Environmental Educator at Honey Hollow 215-297-5880.


Pre-school explorers is a program for 3-5 year olds with a caregiver that explorers nature in all its glory.  Registration for the spring program is open now. Click here to open flier with details.  Call 215-297-5880 to learn more and to register for one or more sessions.

Birthday Parties

Our birthday celebrations are educational, fun, and earth-friendly! Designed for children ages 4-12, each program consists of a 1 hour outdoor environmental education program- often including hiking, crafts and games- hosted by a professional environmental educator provided by the Bucks County Audubon Society. Picnic tables are available afterwards if you wish to continue the celebration and indoor facilities are available in case of inclement weather.

Scout Programs

BCAS offers numerous Scout programs related to the natural world and Pennsylvania ecology. These programs are designed with the badge requirements of boy scouts and girl scouts of all ages in mind. Programs are conducted by trained teacher naturalists. Other Scout opportunities include adopting a native garden, creating and maintaining trails or assisting with special events. BCAS educational staff can also design a program according to the specific needs of your group. Eagle Scout candidates welcome!

School Age Field Trip Curriculum

The Bucks County Audubon Society Education Staff at Honey Hollow is dedicated to providing outstanding educational programs using the outdoors as a classroom. Field trips to Honey Hollow are designed to introduce basic concepts of ecology while creating life-long connections with Pennsylvania’s environment. Student groups that visit the Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center explore that natural word through experiential, hands-on field activities and cooperative learning games.

Field trip curriculum is designed to correspond with the PA Department of Education Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology and can be differentiated according to grade level and classroom goals. Please call 215-297-5880 to discuss program opportunities for your class or group. 


Bucks County Audubon Society and PECO Bring Science to Life for
Elementary School Children in Bristol Schools

Science Comes to Life at Honey Hollow - Thanks to a partnership with PECO

In September and October 2014, children from Snyder-Girotti Elementary School in Bristol Borough learned science in an outdoor classroom setting thanks to a generous grant from PECO.  More than 630 children, ages kindergarten through fifth grade engaged all their senses in our outdoor classroom to study wildlife, insect life and ecosystems at Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center, a 110-acre campus in New Hope, Pa., operated by Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS).

Summer Camp - Coming in August 2015

Summer Science Adventures

Transform your summer camp and offer your campers an unforgettable science exploration adventure! Field trips to Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow generally consist of a brief introductory presentation followed by a hands-on science field activity. Cooperative learning games and nature or science concept related crafts are also often included to engage children in a way that is both educational and fun. If you can’t travel to visit us...perhaps we can come to you! Many of the activities we offer at our site can be successfully transferred to other locations. Outreach programs can be arranged for a single morning– or schedule a series of visits and make science come alive for the budding scientists in your care.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Community Outreach

This program strives to increase the participation of students with ASD in the school-age education programs at Honey Hollow. Through specially designed fieldtrip curriculum, we hope to facilitate the meaningful engagement of students with ASD in learning that takes place outdoors in an authentic community setting. To accomplish this goal, BCAS educators have designed outdoor recreation activities that focus on the skills targeted in autism support classrooms, such as motor skills, sensory integration, social skills and language development.

Traveling Ecology Programs for Schools and Youth Groups

From Bats to Owls, plants to insects, let us introduce the natural world to your troop, classroom or youth group through a slideshow or an interactive science activity. Programs are differentiated according to age and grade level.

Traveling Ecology Programs for Adult Continuing Education

Let us entertain and educate your club, adult community or social group! Schedule a slide presentation at your location or a guided hike around Honey Hollow. Topics include, but are not limited to, bird feeding, the wildlife of the Galapagos, and the history of Honey Hollow.
