Early Eve Ponding Program


Early Eve Ponding Program

Tuesday, July 02

4 PM - 5 PM



Come out to Nippersink Forest Preserve to do some pond scooping. We'll see what kind of animal diversity we find. Who begins their life in the water, and lives there year-round? Why is it so important to take care of water?

Allow children to scoop and play in the water, searching for aquatic critters that perhaps they and you have never seen before.

FREE. Adult supervision required.


Wear water shoes, boots or shoes that will stay on your feet that can get wet and muddy.

Email with questions or to inquire about accommodations.
