This Fall, spend Friday mid-mornings enjoying the outdoors with your Wild Thing in a fun and structured setting.
We start our time together with a good story, a short lesson and a craft, which guide our learning as we venture outside to play games and explore the natural world around us. Topics include seasons, local critters and habitats that can be found in our park and maybe your own backyard!

- September 21
- October 5
- October 19
- November 2
- November 16
