Little Critters – Springtime (Wednesdays)
April 14 @ 1:30 pm - May 26 @ 2:30 pm
Join Sheldrake for our all-outdoor nature program, designed to give children the opportunity for STEM enrichment, connection with nature, and the company of other young enthusiasts. Each week, we’ll explore Sheldrake’s 60 acres, observing the effects of spring on plants and animals. Whether sneaking up on deer camouflaged in the woods, rolling logs in search of creepy-crawlies, or sleuthing on a scavenger hunt, we’ll create our own adventure.
Our Little Critters:
- get first-hand experience with science and nature
- learn about birds, insects, seeds, trees, and other natural wonders
- enjoy the outdoors as they walk the trails of a 60-acre conservancy
- have fun with nature games and other activities
Dates: Wednesdays – April 14-May 26 (7 sessions)
Time: 1:30-2:30 pm
For ages: 3-5 (drop-off program; children must already have turned 3 before the first session)
Fee: $155 for members, $175 for non-members
