Due to rising Covid-19 numbers statewide and locally, we’ve decided to postpone this series. We look forward to continuing our Hand in Hand program in the new year! Stay tuned for more information about upcoming sessions.
Join us for upcoming Hand in Hand Nature Explorations — story time hikes for you and your little one on IslandWood’s Bainbridge campus!
Parents and caregivers are the key to establishing a child’s early love of nature. IslandWood’s new Hand in Hand Nature Explorations series creates opportunities for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to spend one-on-one time exploring, discovering, and making memories together.
Each week’s sessions are designed around a fun and seasonal theme, and include a short hike, story time, and activity or craft. (And, of course, an IslandWood cookie or two!)
Each themed session is offered on Tuesday mornings. Register for just one session, or join us for the whole series!
- Week One: A Visit to the Garden
- Week Two: Fall Leaves
- Week Three: Owls
- Week Four: Around the Pond
- Week Five: Animal Homes
Health & Safety
To ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, there will be a maximum of 11 families per session—22 adults and children in total. The one-to-one guardian to child ratio will help us ensure safe social distancing. We ask that all guests wear masks and complete a health attestation form upon arrival.
We work to ensure that all reasonable accommodations are in place so that everyone can fully participate and learn during their time on our campus. All indoor spaces and many of our outdoor spaces and field structures were built and are continually maintained to meet ADA code, adhering to WAC 51-50.
