Always free. Always fun.
Foster a natural curiosity in your family for science and the great outdoors with our programs for families with children aged 3-12. Experience the topic of the day through discovery hikes, stories, games, and nature art projects. Programs are led by environmental educators. Registration is not required unless designated otherwise. For groups larger than 10 people, please provide advance notice so we can plan accordingly. Programs take place both in the Bunker Interpretive Center, and out in the Ecosystem Preserve, so please come prepared for walking outside in a variety of weather conditions.
During the summer months, bring the family to the preserve and join Miss Nancy, our volunteer naturalist, as she reads a nature storybook and then either plays a game with the participants or takes them on a hike that corresponds with the topic of the book. All programs start at the Bunker Interpretive Center and take place on Wednesdays at 1:30 - 3 p.m.
