Calling all little nature explorers! This week we will be celebrating Go Public Gardens. Join Youth, Family, and Diversity Programs Coordinator Mandie Curtis Banks and Mari, her special caterpillar friend, for mornings full of stories, singing, dancing, and creating as we dig into nature. This virtual series is a free program for children 3-6 years old and their caregivers. Get ready to listen like a deer, observe like an owl, and dance like a monkey at Mandie’s Nature Nook!
