Tin Mountain Conservation Center goes nuts about nature! If you and your child do too, join us for Nature Nuts, a seasonal nature exploration program for 3-5 year olds and their parents or caregivers (and siblings). Young children will be introduced to the entire spectrum of local nature experiences by participating in activities and exploration on the Tin Mountain Conservation Center sanctuary. Topics for each day differ and might include beavers, birds, frogs, animal tracks, rocks, snakes, trees, worms, and many more.
Research shows that contact with the natural world dramatically enhances childhood development on a physical, emotional, and intellectual level, which lasts into adulthood. Children are natural scientists, and love to experience sights, scents, sounds, and textures of the outdoors. Nature Nuts is also a great way to spend time with a special child and meet new friends with common interests.
Nature Nuts will meet Tuesdays, March 5 through April 16 from 10-11:30am at the Tin Mountain Conservation Center Nature Learning Center, 1245 Bald Hill Rd. in Albany. These programs are free and open to the public but we do ask that participants call to register. 603-447-6991.
