Nature Buddies

Nature play for your youngest … and you!

Are you looking for a fun and educational way to interact with your child? Interested in developing new friendships with local families in a warm and welcoming environment? Our weekly Nature Buddies Playgroup might be right for you!

The Nature Buddies Playgroup engages children ages 2-5 in explorations of the natural world. This playgroup will focus on creatures we have in our museum, plants that may be found at our flower table, and other nature-themed topics!  Parents or guardians attend with their children for story time, crafts, movement activities and outdoor play.
