Nature Class for children ages 3-5 with an adult
We will explore a different nature topic each evening through stories, sharing time, guided exploration, and art activities. Snacks will be provided. Participate in a Park Passport Program. Attend five different programs, each located at a different park and receive a Nature Friend Explorer pack. Participants must record program name, location and date with the speaker’s initials on their passport. Turn the passport in at the office at Jester Park or Raccoon River Nature Lodge to receive your Nature Friend Explorer pack. One Nature Friend Explorer pack per child please.
