Youth Programs

Talking Tree

The Talking Tree, a delightful introductory presentation for young children, addresses how trees and people are dependent on each other and emphasizes why we must plant and help care for trees. The Talking Tree is geared to children preschool through kindergarten in individual classes.

A costumed naturalist leads them through a series of interactive lessons that help them learn how trees are important to humans and animals, how they are similar to and different from trees, and how they can help trees and the environment.

The guided nature walk, which is an integral part of all Talking Tree Field Trips, takes students on a sensory and vocabulary journey through the old growth forest to learn about plant and tree diversity. Programming space is limited and dates are filling up quickly so please register as early as possible.
