Afternoon Session Added!

Back by popular demand. Nature Play is a program for children under 4 years old and their caregivers. An experienced nature educator will model how to explore the outdoors with young children and allow healthy risk taking. Activities will be guided by the children’s natural curiosity and wonder as they freely play and explore their environment.

This program takes place at the site of our Maple Grove Nature School and is a very child-friendly natural space to explore.

Children must have an adult caregiver present with a maximum of two children per adult. Siblings under nine months who are worn or carried do not need to register for a ticket. However, if the infant will be crawling around and exploring, please register for a ticket.

Ages:  infant – 4 years + an adult caregiver


Session 1: Fridays, January 19th-February 16th (5 sessions)

Session 2: Fridays, February 23rd-March 22nd (5 sessions)


AM Class: 9:00 am – 11:00 am

PM Class: 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
