Knee High Naturalist
Wiggle like a worm, pounce like a coyote, crawl like a tarantula! You and your Knee High Naturalist will have fun learning together as you examine real plant and animal specimens, complete scavenger hunts, enjoy a snack and story, and make a craft to take home. Each week we will focus on the biology and life cycle of a specific animal. Class is held outside in the forest on the Highlands Center grounds. Parents and Guardians are asked to attend and participate in the fun and learning. This is a science based, all outdoor nature program that offers a stimulating and unique experience for children that are 3-5 years old.
Mondays September 20th- October 18th from 9:30-11 am
Costs members $8 per class, nonmembers $10 per class.
