Explore More at Pritchard Park is an interdepartmental collaboration to activate Pritchard Park through spaces, services, and programs related to environmental education and STEAM learning. It includes outdoor natural play areas, a collection of nature backpacks for kids and families, a series of environmental programs, and a selection of tools, equipment, and resources for citizen science. Citizen Science is the collaboration between the scientific community and the general public, who collect and share data about the natural world.
