Nature Detectives Early Winter
December 2, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - January 27, 2021 @ 4:30 pm
Embrace the arrival of winter with weekly adventures at Sheldrake. School-aged children can enjoy being nature detectives as they search for life under logs and observe the impact of changing temperatures on the natural world. Our all-outdoor nature program gives school-aged children the opportunity for STEM enrichment, connection with nature, and the company of other young enthusiasts.
Our Nature Detectives:
- get first-hand experience with science and nature
- learn about birds, insects, seeds, trees, and other natural wonders
- enjoy the outdoors as they explore the trails of a 60-acre conservancy
- have fun with nature games and other activities
Dates: Wednesdays – December 2-January 27 (7 sessions; no class December 23 or 30)
Time: 3:30-4:30 pm
For ages: 6-9 (drop-off program)
Fee: $175 for members, $200 for non-members
COVID-19 Precautions: All participants are required to wear masks, complete daily health screeners, have their temperature taken daily, and sign a waiver at the outset of the program. Classes are conducted entirely outdoors, including in mildly inclement weather (any canceled classes will be made up in February). Attendance is limited.
