Play, wonder, and explore while immersed in the natural world at the Arboretum!

Content Detail

Play, wonder, and explore while immersed in the natural world at the Arboretum! In these two-week, mixed-ages programs, children become active learners as they follow their curiosity about the natural world and draw on direct physical and social experiences outdoors. 

Through child-led nature play and exploration in the Arboretum’s East Woods, along with storytelling, sharing time, and other developmentally appropriate activities, the programs will offer participants the freedom to learn in an environment filled with wonder and new discoveries every day.

  • This is a drop-off program held completely outdoors. 
  • Recommended ages: 3-6 years.
  • Read the Program Handbook for information on suggested clothing, program supplies, drop-off/pick-up procedures, and more.
