Sign up now for Wee Naturalists sessions

By Staff | Aug 9, 2013

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is now accepting enrollments for its fall “Wee Naturalists” sessions for preschoolers. The sessions will be held on Mondays once a month from August through November.

They 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 will be 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. Each will include walks, crafts, and other activities that focus on something different in nature, related to the season.

The specific session dates will be Aug. 26, Sept. 23, Oct. 21 and Nov. 18.

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 any or all 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.
