NEW: Family Fun Programs, October thru March

The Friends of Five Rivers is offering “Family Fun Programs” October through March at Five Rivers Environmental Education Center.

To apply please complete this registration form.

WHO: Programs are for adults and pre-school children.

WHAT: Adults (parent, grandparent, or guardian) and children (ages 2-4) together will take part in exploring the natural world during different seasons of the year. 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.

WHEN: Each session will take place over a 5, 4 or 3 week period. Participants may come either on Tuesday or on Wednesday. (Both days will be identical. Please commit to either Tuesday or Wednesday.)
