Cupertino students encouraged to join Young Naturalists Program

Cupertino’s Recreation and Community Services division has created a new nature education program for 7th and 8th graders that runs every Friday after school.

At McClellan Ranch Preserve, staff and scientists will guide middle school students in investigating and learning about local plants and animals, their relationship to the ecosystem and in participating in science projects.

The program runs from Sept. 29 to Dec. 1, every Friday afternoon from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
