Community outreach is an important part of the Metroparks’ mission to serve the communities of southeast Michigan. Our three Mobile Learning Centers provide educational programming at your location.
Mobile Learning Centers offer a variety of programs, along with specialized programming for preschool students ages 2-5 and schoolyard ecosystem exploration for upper elementary through high school.
Whether you are a teacher looking for a program for your class to a library looking to host a community program or even a community festival/event, we can come to you. We enhance any event with education, live animals and hands-on activities.

Lisa was AMAZING!! She was so good with the kids, kept their attention, redirected them positively to focus on the presentation, was kind, funny, and animated. I have a student that is non-verbal but communicates and eagerly participates through making noises and he raised his hand to ask a question. Lisa caught on to this fast and included him in the question portion by calling on him. When he couldn't communicate she filled in the words for him and it made his day! She was wonderful. Thank you! We can't wait for the reptiles and amphibian and hope that Lisa will be back!
The Mobile Learning Center visit is outstanding. The students are engaged and learn so much. It supports our curriculum very well.
Thank you for providing this...to our community. It is difficult to find reasonably priced programs to help enrich our social studies program. We also like how you come to us...as field trips are limited. We hope to participate in your program for years to come!
