Event Details

Each season, we offer a series of programs designed for children aged 3-6 (the critters), and their caregivers (the company), to explore nature together. Experience the theme of the day through discovery hikes, stories, games, songs, nature art projects, and puppet shows.  The programs will be led by Jeanette Henderson, CCEP Program Manager.

Program Fee

The series fee is $20 for 1 child, or $15 per child when 2 or more children aged 3-6 years attend. This includes instruction for the seasonal series (four programs), take home discovery pages, nature art materials, and loads of fun. Younger siblings (under 3 years old) are welcome to come for free with their caregiver. Older siblings will need to purchase a ticket to attend.

Please Note: You must purchase a ticket for each child aged 3 and over.
