Bring your little wild ones to learn about nature and enjoy the outdoors. Join us for a fun-filled parent and child experience including storytelling, a guided nature walk, and arts and crafts. Trails are sandy/muddy so wear closed-toe shoes and clothing suitable for outdoors. Strollers are not recommended on the trails.
Program and crafts are tailored for preschool level (ages 2-5), however all ages that enjoy the experience are welcome to attend.
