January- Winter Fun!

With snow covering the ground (hopefully) we will explore the trails by taking a hike on snowshoes and play in the snow.  Indoors we will learn about where animals are in the winter and make a winter themed craft.  Please dress warm for the walk outside.




Animal footprints, or tracks, are one way to learn about an animal without actually seeing it.  Children will explore animal tracks and will make and compare tracks of their own.  A story and craft will also be included.



Registration for the Winter Series of the Knee-high Naturalists Classes will begin December 15th. Please call (616) 355-1057 or stop by the nature center to register.

Fee for the two sessions:$13.00 for Holland City residents and nature center members; $20.00 for non-City residents
