Event details

Get your wild child outdoors 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! The last Friday of each month we will have something new for you and your child to explore as we get a little dirt on those hands and knees.
