Nature Sprouts - Compassionate Conservation

Additional Information

For Earth Month, we will engage with a timeless tale of conservation: “The Lorax.” We will use fine motor skills to craft our very own truffula trees to serve as reminders for this important lesson, then make a positive difference of our own by making native seed bombs to plant at Severson Dells and to take home.

Join Andrea Wallace-Noble for a morning packed with exciting and intentional activities centered around a different environmental theme on the first Saturday each month. We will read children’s books that introduce ecological concepts, make nature-themed crafts that utilize fine motor and creative thinking skills, observe and interact with our natural environment, and of course, have a lot of fun!

We will explore the great outdoors, so please come dressed for the weather. The program is intended for ages 3-6 years and a guardian to accompany them.
