About the Club
No dues or membership fees!
Our Family Nature Club provides the perfect opportunity to get outside with your family and friends and do something fun! Make time to enjoy nature and good company.
Different activities are scheduled one Sunday each month from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.They are designed to promote thinking and use your senses in a safe, natural setting. This is a family program, and a responsible adult must stay with the child or children.
Our goal: Keep children interested in the outdoors by providing opportunities to develop their motor skills, opportunities for imaginative play, build, make and experiment, develop communication and social skills. We want them to become curious about their world!
