Tin Mountain Conservation Center is excited to continue Young Mountaineers, a weekly nature club for children interested in exploring the world around them and taking a closer look at the workings of natural systems. Students in grades 1-4 are invited to meet at Tin Mountain’s Nature Learning Center on Saturdays from 10am to noon to take part in this fun and hands-on program. The current 4-week session will begin on January14 and run through February 4. Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions.

Weekly themes range from wildlife adaptations and seasonal preparedness to ecosystem exploration and nature art. Young Mountaineers is a great way to spend time outdoors, make new friends in the Valley, and increase knowledge of the natural world.
