SKILLS OF A NATURALIST: FAMILY EXPLORATIONS

August 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“Look what I found!”

It’s the cry heard from parents and caregivers around the world when children play and explore the great outdoors. A child’s sense of wonder is something to be celebrated and developed. Families can strengthen and deepen this curiosity with their children using some simple tools and scientific habits of mind!

On our fun hike together, we’ll explore YOUR questions and follow your child’s curiosity. What do ladybugs eat? Do we have any venomous snakes in the Puget Sound area? And how can you tell the difference between a fir, a spruce, and a pine tree anyway?

Learn and be able to teach the “Fab Five” native trees, common bird species, and gain skills to use your senses to unravel nature mysteries and observed phenomena.

 

Our Sr. Naturalist and mom of three, Christina Woolf, will lead this program and share tools and resources on how to continue your journey as naturalists and curious intellectuals, and we’ll model how to use these tools during the program. We won’t walk far, less than one mile… but we’ll see a LOT! We hope you join us for this late summer exploration!

 

Ages 4+ $15/person, 3 years and under FREE

  • Enjoy a complimentary and delicious homemade cookie trail-side!
  • We love dogs, but please leave yours at home unless it is a service animal.
  • Rain or shine people – we’re in Western Washington!
