WHO: Programs are for adults and pre-school children.

WHAT: Adults (parent, grandparent, or guardian) and children (ages 2-4) together will take part in exploring the natural world during different seasons of the year. Each 1 ½ hour session will begin with the sharing of a story book on a nature topic. Participants will take part in an outdoor activity that is suggested by the book. After their guided walk, they will return indoors to take part in a craft or take-home project.
