Tin Mountain Conservation Centeris excited to launch the first session of 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 1-3 are invited to meet at Tin Mountain’s Nature Learning Center on Saturdays from10am tonoon to take part in this fun and hands-on program. The first 4-week session will begin on October 15 and run through November 5. Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions.

Fall is the perfect time to explore the natural environment and observe plants and animals preparing for winter, and Tin Mountain’s 140-acre Rockwell Sanctuary is the perfect place for exploration. The program is strongly tied to Tin Mountain’s mission of promoting environmental appreciation through hands-on learning, so participants should expect to spend most of the course outside learning and exploring. 

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.

Do you know someone who should be a Young Mountaineer? We hope to see them on October 15th! For more information call 447-6991 or email nbeem@tinmountain.org. Program fee $10/session or $35 for all four sessions. Sponsored by the Woodbury Cheritable Foundation.
