Get ready for another exciting year of Nature Tots! This program is open to youth 2 years of age - not yet in Kindergarten. It is a parent-tot program, so all children must be accompanied by an adult for the entire program. All Nature Tot events will include a snack, story, craft, and short hike! Participants will be able to choose to attend one activity, all four, or any combination they would like. Registration forms and payment must be received to reserve a spot in Nature Tots.
