We are excited to announce our slate of fall youth and family programming!
This preschool program is designed for children ages 3-5 and their adult guardians to explore nature together. In addition to our Cool Spring monthly programs, we are now offering the program monthly at Yankauer. Programs will include story-time, a small hike, and crafts!
Our popular homeschool Outdoor School program will be returning this fall. We are now offering two-class sessions at Cool Spring Preserve and Yankauer Preserve. Each session’s focus will be guided by the seasonal changes and by participants’ observations and interests. Participants can expect to hike and have time for nature exploration at every class.
We are introducing our new monthly campfire programs at Cool Spring Preserve. Each program will include group campfire cooking of a tasty treat in a dutch-oven and lively story-telling around the campfire by storyteller and AmeriCorps service member Will O’Boyle.
In October, we have a special campfire! We are hosting our 4th annual “Trail of Bones”. We invite families to embark on an evening hike to search for hidden animal skulls and bones along the way
Each Friday this fall, families can join us for Turtle Time. After a nature themed story, participants will meet Cool Spring’s animal ambassadors and have the chance to help us feed them.
