Maymont’s field investigation programs are a great option for homeschooled students! Enrich your student’s environmental science, history and social studies with hands-on experiences and interactive learning tools that take advantage of Maymont’s new facilities as well as the historic 100-acre landscape.


Wetland Explorations

Get your hands dirty and learn about the importance of wetlands! Use dip nets to safely capture and observe aquatic creatures, and learn about the importance of sub-aquatic vegetation for habitats and water quality. Through interactive technology, students will identify their watershed and discuss how wetlands are essential for a healthy James River. Meet at The Robins Nature Center, where a tour is included.
