Welcome to Wildlife: Kids Program * From February 11 to May 28, Saturdays and Sundays, 2:00-5:00 PM
Children 5-12 will enjoy a wide range of habitat and wildlife experiences in a series of hands-on stations, as well as guided walks within the park, with a wealth of additional activities tailored to middle schoolers. Children and youth learn important concepts such as 'ecosystem,' 'habitat,' 'indigenous,' and 'introduced,' with living examples in the park, and become aware of the species with whom they are sharing the land. This Program is made possible by the Habitat Conservation Fund Program.
