Program Calendar

We engage nature lovers of all ages through our year-round programs, including summer camps, afterschool activities, birthday parties, homeschool classes, scout programs, and field trips.

Spring 2019 Programs


Babes in the Woods
Let our naturalist introduce the sights and sounds of nature. Take a sensory walk on our kid friendly trails and listen for frog calls, feel animal furs, or look at bright colorful feathers. There are lots of interesting ways to discover nature together. Ages 4 and under.

I LOVE Nature
You are invited to investigate a different nature theme each month! Each session is unique and incorporates games, songs, stories and a craft. Enjoy this time with your child and see the natural world through their eyes. Ages 3 – 5. $8 per parent child pair.

Nature Academy
Get ready to play in the park! Observe, listen, smell, and feel the outdoors in this interactive program designed for our smallest nature lovers. Our supplemental, nature- based program is for those pre-school age children who learn best naturally. Join us as we explore the woods, the creek, the fields, and look deep into our environment to discover answers together.


Big Outdoors
Our semester-long outdoor class for the big kids! Take a weekly adventure into the woods, creek, or fields to explore natural science concepts that teach you how the “real world” works.


Bird Walks
Discover the dozens of wild bird species at the park with local experts from Wild Birds Unlimited. Bring a pair of binoculars or borrow ours. Select Sundays from 10am – 12pm. All ages. FREE.
