At Riverbend we believe in the joy that comes from time spent outdoors. Returning for the fall of 2023, our new program “Budding Naturalists” seeks to foster a connection with nature for our youngest learners.
Join Riverbend educators on Monday afternoons or Wednesday mornings for a preschool-friendly nature-based program that includes a story, craft, nature activity, and a “hike” around our preserve. Every week we’ll gather in Riverbend’s Snider Barn to begin the fun!
- This program is one hour each week and is designed for children ages 2-5. A caregiver must accompany each child. Siblings under 2 are welcome at no additional charge.
- In the fall of 2023, two sessions are being offered. The cost is $120 per child for each six-week session. Enrollment is capped at 12 participants. The final meeting of every session will include a campfire and s’mores.
- Please register for the Monday or Wednesday session, not both. The same program will be presented on Mondays and Wednesdays each week.
