Community Preschool Programs
November 18, 2019
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join us on the Anne Springs Close Greenway every first and third Monday at 10am for our community preschool programs. Preschoolers will complete nature themed literature activities, crafts, hikes, and use their imaginations! This program is geared for children ages 2-5 years old and must have a parent or guardian present throughout the program. While we encourage every member of the family to attend these programs, please note that due to uneven terrain and roots and rocks, our trails are often unsuitable for strollers, so any young children will either need to walk by themselves or be carried.
Programs will last about an hour and are held rain or shine. This program is $2 per participating child, plus a $5 entry fee for non-members. All programs take place at the Nature Center at the Lake Haigler Entrance.
