Exploring and learning in the outdoors! This 4-week parent child nature exploration course centers on cultivating both your child's sensory awareness, curiosity and wonder in nature and your skills as a guide and teacher through a series of tiny trips in Seward Park. After warming up with stories, song and movement we will practice the art of wandering and imaginative play. Each class provides parent training in how to guide explorations on your own and suggested activities and adventures across the region.

The cost is $40.00 for the full 4 weeks. Scholarships are available upon request. Please email mpita@audubon.org for more information.

The Talking Tree is an hour program that teaches the importance of trees to preschool children.  Children are able to learn how trees grow, why we need trees and what you can do to help them through song, stories, and activities. This program is perfect for daycares, preschools, and community centers that can’t make it out to Seward Park.  If children are not able to travel to Seward Park a Seward Park volunteer can visit a classroom to teach the lesson.
