‘Wee Naturalists’ set for pre-school children

By Staff | Mar 18, 2011

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is offering its “Wee Naturalists” program this spring.

The program is aimed at pre-school children ages 3 to 5. It is designed to provide regular opportunities for children and adults to explore nature together safely under the guidance of an experienced PVAS instructor. Children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or other adult, relative or guardian.

Program sessions will be offered at PVAS’s Yankauer Nature Preserve in March and April. Each session will last from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and each month’s sessions will explore a different nature theme.

One session will be held on March 30 with the theme, “Let’s Go Outside!”

Two sessions will be on April 27 and 28. The theme for these sessions will be “What do April Showers Bring?”

To ensure that all participants receive close, personal attention, enrollment will be limited and pre-registration is required.

Families may register for one or all of the monthly sessions. The fee for each session will be $5 for each child/adult team.

The sessions will be led by Suzi Taylor, of Sharpsburg, Md., a veteran PVAS camp director who has a degree in environmental education.

Information and registration forms are available at www.potomacaudubon.org or by contacting Taylor at 301-432-1908 or tomand suzi506@cs.com.
