Every class is held at Ijams Nature Center (2915 Island Home Avenue, Knoxville). Due to the ongoing pandemic all classes are made up of 1 hour indoor instruction and 3 hours outdoor instruction and exploration. The indoor portion will be streamed via Zoom if you can not make it in person for any reason. If Ijams must close due to a COVID outbreak during the session, all affected classes will move to a Zoom format and the field portions will be made up at a later date.
