Each season, we offer a four week series of programs designed for children aged 3-6 (the critters), and their caregivers (the company), to explore nature together. Experience the theme of the day through discovery hikes, stories, games, songs, nature art projects, and puppet shows. Programs are led by environmental educators, and take place in both the Bunker Interpretive Center and out in the Calvin Ecosystem Preserve & Native Gardens.

Program fee

The series fee is $30 for 1 child, or $25 per child when 2 or more children aged 3-6 years attend.

Cost includes instruction for the seasonal series (four programs), take home discovery pages, nature art materials, and loads of fun!

Please note: Younger siblings (under 3 years old) are welcome to come for free with their caregiver. Older siblings will need to purchase a ticket to attend.

Spring 2021 series

The spring series has been canceled due to COVID-19.

Fall 2021 series

We are hopeful that our programs will resume as normal in the fall. The fall series is typically taught in October; please check back in September for dates and topics.
