|New program for ages 5-12 with a parent is stepping stone to connecting with nature|
The class is for ages five to 12 with a parent or guardian and is called Stepping Stones because it is meant as a stepping stone into nature. This program is led by an experienced but young-at-heart park naturalist and is the ideal opportunity for kids and adults to discover and be together in a safe outdoor setting. Parents or caregivers will play an important role during these programs as they explore the woods and find nature's treasures and hear fun interactive stories. Please note that this is a not an arts and crafts program and participants will not make physical stepping stones. Perform a catalog search for the keyword "kids & nature" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This program will meet on three consecutive Saturdays beginning Sept. 25. A session for ages five through eight and their parents or guardians begins at 10 a.m., while a session for ages nine through 12 and their parents or guardians begins at 11:15 a.m. For either age group, the cost for three one-hour sessions is $28 per parent and child for Johnson County residents or $30 per parent and child for nonresidents.
