On Mondays in September, from 9:30 -11am, outside in the forest on the Highlands Center grounds, children from 3-5 years old will participate in activities that include physical games, role playing, scavenger hunts, a story, a snack, and a craft. Parents and Guardians are asked to attend and participate in the fun and learning.

You and your Knee-High Naturalist will have fun learning together as you examine real plant and animal specimens, complete scavenger hunts, enjoy a snack and story, and make a craft to take home.
