Each 1 ½ hour session will begin with the sharing of a story book on a nature topic. Participants will take part in an outdoor activity that is suggested by the book. After their guided walk, they will return indoors to take part in a craft or take-home project.

EXTRA: Participants will keep an age-appropriate record of their nature adventures and will be sent an e-mail before each meeting day. The e-mails will be a reminder and a picture clue of what that week's adventure will be.

COST: 4 week Session: Basic session fee = $25.00 + Material fee per child per session of $10.00
