The Outdoor Science Explorers Program is a great way for kids to spend some time outside after school, exploring, playing and learning in our local parks. Kids will engage in activities and games that strengthen their observational skills, build self reliance and social skills, and increase their knowledge of local plants, animals, and ecosystems.
