07/31/2018: NOTE THE CHANGE IN LOCATIONS: Due to construction around Matthews Park, Nature Play will now be located at Kin Park only for the remaining weeks!
We are happy to announce that Nature Play is back and with the warm weather it’s headed outside! Nature Play – Summer Edition will take place every Wednesday from 9:30 – 10:30 AM. We will be alternating between Kin Park and Matthews Park (Look for us in the trees!).
Nature Play is NEAT’s Toddler/Preschool & Parent/Caregiver program that focuses on introducing families to the flora and fauna that surrounds us everyday and helping your family to become ‘at home’ in nature. Each week will bring a new theme for parents/caregivers and kids that will encourage them to explore the wonders of the world around them. Our enthusiastic NEAT Team along with some special guests, have a summer full of fun planned for our tiniest wildlings and hope to see you in the trees!
