Calling all animal lovers! Critters and Kids is just for you. This hands-on, animal-centered program is where kids will discover nature from an animal’s perspective. Finding food, building homes, raising young and surviving the weather are some of the challenges facing our native wildlife. Using the Nature Center’s live animal collection to bring these realities to life, children will learn how Mother Nature has built each creature to survive. Stories, outdoor exploration, games, songs and draft projects will round out this exciting program. Critters and Kids is a one day per week program.

Children can sign up for one day of Critters and Kids and one day of Nature’s Playroom. Also, you can extend your child’s daily activities at the Nature Center with Lunch Bunch.
