Tadpole Troopers (ages 3-5)

Tadpole Troopers is a nature class for parents and children to share together. Classes are targeted for children ages 3 to 5 that offer opportunities for natural science investigations, crafts, and a guided walk with a naturalist. All classes begin with an engaging introductory lesson inside a classroom followed by a walk outside. Parents are required to stay for the duration of class with their child. Siblings are not permitted unless they are registered for the class.

Registration opens for Members on July 31 and for Nonmembers on August 14. Check below for the fall schedule.
