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. As the weather gets colder we’ll be shifting inside to the Elizabeth Morse Genius Children’s Garden where kids can learn about different animals, make observations, become a chef in our soil kitchen and have an animal encounter!. Drop in with your young one and enjoy this free family programming. Please note that animal guests will will only occur twice a month – see below for the schedule

*Due to staff limitations, we cannot accommodate groups. Kids must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per 5 children). Various Locations Indoors and Out – check the front desk for location and look for the orange flags
