March- Sensory Adventures
Animals use their senses in their everyday lives to survive. Come and get a close-up look at our animals and learn about their special sensory abilities. A story and craft will be included.
April- Spring Awakening
With longer days and warmer temperatures (hopefully) the middle of April will be a good time to look for signs of Spring. Join us as we take a walk outside, hear a story, and get up-close with some animals while learning about our Spring season.
May- Grow as we Go
Children can come and explore the life-cycles of familiar wildlife and understand that living things grow and change. Dipping in the pond, crafts and a story will be included.
Registration will start for the Spring Series of the Knee-high Naturalists Classes on February 20th. Please call (616) 355-1057 or stop by the nature center to register.
Fee: $20.00 for Holland City residents and nature center members;
