Pre-school Forest Adventures

Absolutely Animals!

How do animals survive in the forest? What do they eat? Where do they live? How do they hide? In autumn, a focus will be on how animals prepare for and survive the winter.

Pond Exploration

So many creatures live in a pond, from tadpoles to dragonfly nymphs. Children will collect a variety of animals with nets and examine them under a magnifying lens. Dress to get messy! 

Woods Walk
This easy hike acquaints children with the forest ecosystem. Explore animal homes and hiding places, and discover the variety of plants that grow in a forest and what they need to survive. This program is combined with a Scavenger Hunt in which children and teachers/chaperones look for different colors, shapes and textures in the forest.

Going Buggy!

Grab a net and bug viewer and let’s go! Catch a variety of bugs, view them up close, and learn about the differences between spiders and insects.  


The Nature Explore Classroom is geared toward children 3-5 years old. The Building Area, Nature Art Area, Messy Materials Area, Climbing Area, Music Area, and Digging Area stimulate creativity and develop motor skills while connecting children to nature. Also, it’s good, messy fun!




Each program is approximately two hours in length. Our staff will work with you to meet the needs of your group. Call 502/368-5404 for pricing.
