Event details

Patterns are all around us — some we can see, some we can hear and some that follow cycles throughout the year. Join us for this monthly nature-themed program for 3- to 5-year-olds as we explore different patterns and maybe make some of our own.

Be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities, including a hike, a story, games, music, art and more. We encourage experiencing the outdoors rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.
