Wee Naturalists starts in April

By Staff | Mar 30, 2012

There’s still time to sign up for the Potomac Audubon Society’s April Wee Naturalists program sessions.

The sessions will be held at the Society’s Yankauer Nature Preserve on April 25 and 26, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. each day.

The theme of both sessions will be: “What Do April Showers Bring?” Participating children will explore the preserve’s trails, looking for changes in nature brought about by spring rains.

PVAS’s Wee Naturalists program is designed to provide regular opportunities for children ages 3-5 to explore nature together safely under the guidance of an experienced PVAS instructor. At each session, children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent, other adult relative or guardian.

The program is led by Suzi Taylor, of Sharpsburg, Md., a veteran Audubon camp director who has a degree in environmental education. To ensure that everyone receives close, personal attention, enrollment will be limited and pre-registration is required.

Easy on-line registration is available on the new website at www.potomacaudubon.org. The fee is $5 per child/adult team per session.

For more information, contact Ms. Taylor at 301-432-1908 or tomandsuzi506@cs.com.

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is a United Way of the Eastern Panhandle partner agency and a member of the Combined Federal Campaign.
