K-12 Programs

Ever dream about how to inspire K-12 students? We do.

The Lilly Center is passionate about teaching the next generation. We help students stay curious by teaching them to fish, identify their watershed, understand aquatic critter lifecycles and more. Our K-12 programs preserve the lakes by inspiring students… they are the future of our community!

Teachers, homeschool moms and lifelong learners: we are eager to help you. From curriculum to field trips, we have a wealth of programs and resources for your classroom. We develop everything in-house to align with current teaching standards.

K-12 Programs

From Classroom Lake Experience to the Lakes & Streams Art Contest, we offer a wide range of hands-on programming. All Lilly Center resources are specifically crafted with STEM schools in mind! Students learn about pollution, lifecycles, erosion and more. Start exploring your options:
