Wee Naturalists planning sessions

By Staff | Mar 28, 2013

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is now accepting enrollments for its April and May “Wee Naturalists” sessions for preschoolers. The sessions are designed to provide opportunities for children ages 3-5 to explore nature together safely under the guidance of an experienced PVAS instructor.

All sessions are held at the Society’s Yankauer Nature Preserve, on Whiting’s Neck in northeastern Berkeley County. Each session will last from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

The April sessions will be held on Monday, April 15 and Thursday, April 18. The May sessions will be held on Monday, May 6 and Thursday May 9..

The April sessions will be devoted to learning about signs of spring. The May sessions will be focused on animal babies and their families.

PVAS’s Wee Naturalists program is led by Suzi Taylor, of Sharpsburg, Md., a veteran Audubon camp director who has a degree in environmental education.

At each session, children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent, other adult relative, or guardian.

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 Society’s website at www.potomacaudubon.org. Families may register for one or both of the months. 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 Wee Naturalists program was established in 2009 with support from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation’s Two Rivers Giving Circle.
