Little Kids | ages 5 and under

For our smallest naturalists, we offer creative, open-ended, exploratory programs for children aged 3 to 5 and their caregivers. Our goal: to foster an early love of the natural world and an eagerness to have fun outside!

Mighty Acorns Explorer Club

Held from September to May on the third Thursday of each month, Mighty Acorns invite young adventurers to explore the natural world through interactive games, puzzles, and activities. This program is held at The Nature Museum and most sessions involve exploring our backyard and the nearby woods, fields and pond. We hope you and your little one can join us in the fall!

Mighty Acorns will meet the following days this winter and spring; please note, babes-in-arms are welcome to tag along with caregivers.
