Event details

Answer the call of your wild child by getting outside with this monthly nature-themed program geared toward children ages 3 to 5. Join a naturalist for hands-on activities such as games, stories, crafts, hikes and more! On the last Friday of each month, we will have something new for you and your child to explore while getting a little dirt on those hands and knees.

Be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities as well as experiencing all types of weather (rain, shine, and even snow). Please dress accordingly.
