Event Details

Children ages 3-6 and their adult caregivers are invited to join us for a 90 minute nature themed monthly program. Each month our “sprouts” will use their senses to connect to the natural world through nature stories, short hikes, songs and nature crafts.

Series Schedule

(All classes are on Thursday from 10am to 11:30am)

May 25: Ducks

Join the Sprouts as we visit different lakes in the core to look at the water fowl, specifically the ducks that nest and swim at Duke Farms during the summer. We will read a duck story outside, if possible, and maybe even have some duck races! Dress for the weather and bring water bottles.

June 8: Pollinators

The Community Garden and Meadows should be abuzz with pollinator activity. We will learn the importance of pollinators, make some native bee boxes, taste test some honey treats, and take home a pollinator plant. Don’t forget the sunscreen and water!

July 20: Frogs

Hop, hop, hippity, hop. The Sprouts will investigate the waters in the core property for frogs in various life cycle stages. They will learn how frogs grow and what place they have in our environment. Make sure your clothing can get wet and everyone should have waterproof boots.

August 17: Turtles

Duke Farms is home to many types of turtles. We will look for turtles on the property and have a chance to see a box turtle up close and personal. Find out what makes these animals so special and unique. We will make a paper plate turtle puppet and complete other turtle activities.

ACCOMPANYING ADULTS ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO REGISTER.

Participant register for the entire series.
