This is just placeholder text. Don’t be alarmed, this is just here to fill up space since your finalized copy isn’t ready yet. Once we have your content finalized, we’ll replace this placeholder text with your real content. Sometimes it’s nice to put in text just to get an idea of how text will fill in a space on your website.

Traditionally our industry has used Lorem Ipsum, which is placeholder text written in Latin. Unfortunately, not everyone is familiar with Lorem Ipsum and that can lead to confusion. I can’t tell you how many times clients have asked me why their website is in another language!

Children learning about nature

All Things Nature

A shell, a flower, a crab, a seed, the sun, you and me. All parts of nature. This program explores nature all around us and exposes children to what lives in our backyards. We’ll get children excited about discovering nature and how to protect it. Listen to stories and play at our exploration tables.

Curious Critters

This is no fish tale! Learn what makes a fish a fish during enriching nature story time. We’ll check out some of the animals from our fresh water pond without getting our feet wet. (PLEASE NOTE: due to the amount of staff prep time and clean up, there is an additional fee of $75 for this program)

Aquatic Adventure

Learn what lives in a pond by wading in our freshwater pond with dip nets searching for fish, shrimp, and other aquatic critters. We promise to get your students’ shoes wet…after all, it’s the best way to get up close and personal with pond creatures. (Not offered in January or February.)
