Programs for Children


New and improved Junior Nats! Program offers a monthly theme!

Saturday Program | 10 am-12 pm | Grades: K-2nd & 3rd-5th 

Here’s a great way for children to explore nature. Each month, they will dive into new discoveries about the outdoor world. Children will learn through hands-on activities, hikes and crafts. Each child will receive a “passport” at the first session and will receive stamps at each program they attend to earn some great prizes. Sign up for sessions individually. No need to commit to multiple sessions.

Knee-high Naturalists at Stage Nature Center | Each monthly session offers: A nature-related theme designed for children ages 2-4, the session starts with a fun craft followed by activities that reinforce the day's lesson. The group then heads outside for an outdoor trail hike, guided by nature instructor Lori Brown.  Some of the outdoor activities include looking under logs, searching for wildlife and their tracks, exploring our pond and observing how each different parts of nature interact.  Some things children may see along the trails include deer, turkeys, owls, squirrels, birds and insects. Each hike is followed by an indoor nature story and a snack.
