Nature Toddlers

With Dave Van Manen

August 21, 2017

IMG_6441A wonderful way to experience the wonders of Nature with your little one(s). The program is designed especially for toddlers and consists of a gentle hike, music, exploration, discovery, and lots of fun! We listen for and look for birds, watch the clouds drift by, learn about local animals, sing songs, learn some simple sign language, and we usually even learn a few basic yoga poses (made extra fun for little ones). A treat for toddlers and their moms, dads, and grandparents! Please note we are switching the program to Mondays!
