This five-session series introduces toddlers to the delights of nature at a hands-on level in an unhurried atmosphere. Each session includes an introduction indoors before going outside for a hike, stopping to discover nature's treasures along the way. This program is also offered on Tuesdays.

September 20: Insects and Spiders
The insect and spider world is fun and fascinating. Using sweep nets and bug boxes, we'll learn about our busiest neighbors.

September 27: Fabulous Flowers
Become a plant detective and explore the gardens and fields of the sanctuary. Toddlers will take a close-up look at the many colors and shapes of our native fall flowers.

October 4: Busy Beavers
Take a walk to the wetlands to see a beaver lodge, dam, beaver chews, and scent mounds. As a group, we will build our own beaver lodge.

October 11: Chipmunks and Squirrels
Learn about chipmunks and squirrels and discover how they are similar and how they are different. We'll take a walk to look for their homes and find evidence of what they have been eating.

October 18: Terrific Trees
What does tree bark feel like? Using our senses, we will compare the parts of a tree, collect leaves, and see how many different colors we can find.
