Start 'em young! Toddler Nature Classes provide a fun introduction to animals, plants and nature in general. You and your toddler will experience nature together as we share a song, a story, and a walk outside. Dress for the weather because we always go outside! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Begin the evening indoors with a presentation that will introduce you to owls, their calls, and their adaptations.
