August 14, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until August 28, 2019
Join us Wednesday evenings and let your kids get a little wild! Whether we’re inside or out, we will be exploring nature, getting our hands dirty, and discovering new things about plants, animals and nature. In the winter months, we bring animal guests once a month – every 3rd Wednesday! Can you find and identify fake bugs in our dig pit? What about going on an adventure through the Conservatory to find rare and unusual plants? This is an evening of imagination and exploration sure to make Wednesday the best day of your child’s week! Drop in with your young one and let the learning begin!
In the warmer months we’re outside in our Play and Grow Garden where kids can get a little wild as they climb on our tinker tree, build a fort, dig in our pebble pool and run around! Animal visitors will join us once a month, every 3rd Wednesday. We’ll also be growing our own edible garden with kids’ help, conducting experiments to better understand nature, and much more!
*Due to staff limitations, we cannot accommodate groups. Kids must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per 5 children).
All events will be reviewed before publishing to the calendar. Event approval usually occurs on Wednesdays; if you need your event to be reviewed before then, please email Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
