April 11 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
This spring enjoy Fantasy Nature with a special version of Sheldrake Envirénmon!!! Combining a child’s interest in nature and fantasy, this program nurtures a child’s imagination as we head out on the trails in search of things in nature that closely resemble the characters in Pokémon.
Did you know Pikachu’s original design concept for Pokémon is based on a squirrel, not a mouse? Pokémon characters are influenced by animals, insects and objects found in nature as they go through their life cycle. Many of the Pokémon characters are nearly identical to their real-world animal inspirations. For example, Caterpie Is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar.
Class is held entirely outdoors, with nature as our classroom.
