This series guides adults in a unique outdoor experience with their young ones. Each session highlights a different way animals move. Fly, crawl, hop, swim and slither together through hands-on nature activities, exploration, stories, crafts and interaction with live animals.

This program is for children ages 4-6 by the first day of the program with an adult.

We are unable to make age exceptions because activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities for this program's specific age range.
