Public Programs for Ages 1-5

Tiny Tots

A hands-on carnival of activities to help your 1-3 year-old begin learning about nature! Each session features a unique theme and includes both indoor and outdoor discovery opportunities. Puppet shows, engaging songs, stories, nature walks, crafts, and more will be utilized throughout the series so that each session is new and exciting.

Nature Tales

Join us each month for this naturally unique story time for 1-5 year-olds. We accompany the story with a selection of hands-on, nature-themed activities that will include live animal visits and an outdoor activity.

Tykes Preschool Program

A special program for 4-5 year-olds that lasts a whole month, Tykes is two hours of educational fun every week - and adults are free to leave (though welcomed to stay)! This program features a variety of activities including animal presentations, hikes in Black Pond Woods, crafts, experiments, and a snack. As our Tykes program relies on building camaraderie as a group, space is limited and preregistration is required. If minimum registration is not reached by the Friday prior to the initial session, the program may be canceled.
