Polliwogs have the most fun, so swim over to Lichterman Nature Center this summer for an interactive introduction to all things nature, excellent preparation for Kindergarten to come! Leap to Lichterman and enjoy daily nature walks, fish feeding and meeting live animals. Pretend to be a beaver or turtle and dress up with friends. Be creative by making tree cookie ornaments. Collect leaves with a Naturalist to invent a leaf person. Enjoy nature- themed story time and games. Compose music with self-made instruments of natural materials. Dig in the dirt and enjoy fantasy free play on forested trails. Get muddy and plant a lovely native flower to take home and much more!
