The Sandia Mountain Natural History Center offers specialized programs during the summer months for scout groups, summer camps, and other outdoor enthusiasts.

Prehistoric Preschool is a Museum program for 3-5 year-olds and their adult companions to explore natural history topics in a supportive and fun atmosphere. All activities are child-centered, hands-on, and age appropriate. Classes include two hours of crafts, songs, games, puppet shows, investigating specimens from the Museum's collections, Museum visits, and a fun and healthy snack.  Classes take place every other week

Join a community of like-minded teens who want to learn science content, customer service skills, and engage with the public while working as educators in the Museum's exhibit halls. The program is supported and enriched by the active involvement of Museum staff, scientists, curators, and volunteers who share their content expertise and love of their fields with the Junior Docents.

Kiwanis Learning Garden was built by Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque in 1998 to inspire in New Mexican families a love of nature. It was later expanded by the NM Museum of Natural History & Science to be a picnic spot. Since May 2013, families have gathered once a week to be its caretakers, exploring the outdoor space, planning how to plant and create a garden that is for animals, humans and plants.
