Coyotes, Falcons, and that Bear, Oh My!
How can people and wildlife better coexist in the city? Peregrine falcons nest in St. John’s steeple; bald eagles soar over the Schuylkill. Coyotes run down our streets, turkey vultures roost on the radio towers, and an occasional black bear wades across the Wissahickon. But the needs of these animals and people often conflict, as witnessed by the thousands of creatures brought to our Wildlife Clinic annually.

When schools are closed, we’re open! Bring your kids to the Schuylkill Center for a day of fun and exploration. Travel silently and unseen through the forest while practicing spatial awareness and navigation skills. Solve nature puzzles and team challenges, go on a series of adventures, and figure out which other animals are active outdoors in the winter. Please bring a packed lunch and a water bottle. Wear weather-appropriate clothing. Extended day until 6:00 pm is available for an additional $15/day.
For ages 5–12 | 8:00 am–3:00 pm | Members: $52 | Non-members: $62. Programs with a field trip may include an additional fee. Registration is required.
Please note, day-off camps will be cancelled ONE WEEK PRIOR if the minimum number of participants is not reached by then. Please register soon; space is limited.
