As the days get longer and temperatures warm, the world around us changes. We will use all our senses to search for emerging insects, calling birds and frogs, budding plants, and more. Most of this session will be spent outside. Snacks provided. Grades 1-3 meet from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.; grades 4-6 meet 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The cost is $22 per session ($17 for members of the Foundation of the State Arboretum). Pre-registration is required.

The 2014 Young Naturalist Program is offered by the Foundation of the State Arboretum and is sponsored by The Adams Companies.
