Carolina Explorers is an environmental education program that invites kids (ages 8-12) to explore the flora, fauna and fungi of this special state.

We offer a once-a-month “Adventures in Nature” class for kids at the Banner Elk Book Exchange, located at the Historic Banner Elk School in beautiful downtown Banner Elk, North Carolina. Visit the “Adventures in Nature” page for current classes.

We also produce a publication all about the nature of North Carolina, from mountains to coast. Families who participate in the hands-on “Adventures in Nature” program in Banner Elk receive a free annual subscription to the publication. A limited number of issues are free to families who visit the Banner Elk Book Exchange.
