Nature Explorers – FALL 2021 Series!

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Thursday and Saturday, repeating until October 30, 2021

Join Miss Mary at Lorrimer Sanctuary and enjoy watching your budding naturalist go wild experiencing woodland adventures. Great for 3-5 YOs! The Lorrimer Sanctuary invites families, friends, and nature lovers to join us for an exploration of our natural world. Enjoy watching your budding naturalist ‘go wild’ experiencing woodland adventures. Children use all their senses to safely explore and discover the wonders of nature here at Lorrimer Sanctuary. Children are introduced to nature concepts using a combination of storytelling, exploration and arts and crafts. It is educational and fun!

COST:$8 per child for members, $10 per child for nonmembers.


October 7 & 9- Exploring the Five Senses: As we explore, children will be encouraged to make their own discoveries. We will use our senses to ‘tune in’ to the world around us.

October 14 & 16– Leaf Art: Let’s take a closer look at leaves. Make outdoor art with colorful fall leaves and learn about the trees they come from!

October 21 & 23– Hibernate or Migrate? Who sleeps the winter away and who flies south?

October 28 & 30– Brilliant Bats: Boo! Come celebrate Halloween with us by learning about the bats that live in our forests and what makes them so unique! Dress up in costume during this special class!
