Children’s Programs – Fall ’22

In 2022, Learning Adventures for Children are held outdoors in the diverse environments across the Preserve’s beautiful grounds and in the Phil Dejana Learning Center Outdoor Classroom. Weekly classes of just eight to ten children ages 18 months through 14 years foster lifelong connections between art, science, wellness, and the environment.
