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 Club

Held from September to June on the second Friday of each month, Mighty Acorns Club invites 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; environmental educator Jay DeGregorio leads the group. We hope you and your little ones can join us! 

Notice About Outdoor Activities
Mighty Acorns Club will happen rain or shine! Make sure you and your mighty acorn(s) are ready for whatever the weather has in store for us! If there are unsafe weather conditions (e.g. thunder/lightning, high winds, extreme cold, etc.), we will have an alternative indoor activity.

$5 in advance per child; $8 drop-in. Caregivers are free.
