About This Activity

Description

It's proven - preschoolers need nature! Research supports it: time in nature as a young child with trusted adults increases creativity, focus, coordination, & social development. During our experiential ecology lessons in Portland's Parks & Natural areas, children learn about Pacific NW ecology through games, activities, exploration and unstructured play.


This is a drop-off program! If the class is full, join the waiting list. If we can find another teacher, we will add spots!

Duration of this class is 2.5 hours!
LESSON TOPICS FOR THIS SESSION: 1. Pikas, 2. Snow & Hail, 3. Mushrooms, 4. Slugs

Small groups of preschoolers explore nature with highly-trained, preschool naturalists and learn about local plants & animals through crafts, songs, games and play. Children are outdoors rain or shine - we make nature fun in any type of weather! Student to teacher ratio is 4:1 or better. If the class is full, always join a waitlist! If we can find teachers to add a section, we will!

PREPARING FOR CLASS: Visit our "Once Registered" page to be ready for your first day of class! http://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/66022 (If you did the fall classes, we still need your health form! 2016 forms are not carried into the new year.)

MEETING SPOT: Meet at the picnic table close to the bathroom building near the intersection of SE Ankeny St & SE Laurelhurst Pl.
