Forest Fridays: Spring Series

Friday, April 5, 2024 | 9:00 am - 11:30 am

$400.00 – $475.00


Friday mornings, April 5 – May 24

Forest Fridays is an 8-week, Friday morning series hosted by the Nature School. This program makes use of the Center’s outstanding nature trails, as well as the school’s four specially designed outdoor classrooms. In this series, Nature School teachers focus on nature experiences that are age-appropriate and include plenty of time for play and social interaction. Our series highlights inquiry-based science, emergent literacy, and process-focused art experiences.

In our Spring Series, we’ll learn about spring bird migration, spy the first signs of spring, study the ephemeral life in a vernal pond, observe spring wildflowers, and learn about the magic of metamorphosis. Participants will hike and explore favorite destinations at Schlitz Audubon, including Turtle Pond, Western Prairie, and Lake Michigan, but also have time to climb, play, and explore. Expect lots of mud and puddle play!

Forest Fridays is the perfect option for families with children ages 4-6 who would like their children to share in the Nature School experience but prefer a short-term commitment! It is also a nice complement to a traditional K4 afternoon program.

A completed student profile, which includes a health history and emergency care plan, is required for each participant prior to registration.

Members: $400 | Non-members: $475
