Calling all little nature explorers! Join Youth, Family, and Diversity Programs Coordinator Mandie Curtis Banks and Mari, her special caterpillar friend, for mornings full of stories, singing, dancing, and playing as we dig into nature. This in-person series is a free program for babies – PreK aged children and their caregivers. Get ready to listen like a deer, observe like an owl, and dance like a duck at Mandie’s Nature Nook!

All classes will be held outdoors if weather permits. In case of severe weather, a virtual option will be offered through Zoom. The class is free, but registration is required and limited. COVID safety protocols for physical distancing will be in place. Masks for participants over 2 years old are strongly encouraged.
