Like an acorn that has just sprout, your child is growing and can benefit from nature.  Join us as we explore the animals and plants of the Wilbur D. May Arboretum & Botanical Garden.  Little Sprouts will embark on parent child discoveries that promote hand eye coordination, social skills, curiosity, and questioning.  Lessons are inspired by patterns in nature and the beginning concepts of the natural sciences.  No matter the season, classes are held once a month and are free!  The format for each class varies depending on the weather, however all include a story time and guided exploration.  Contact the Arboretum Educator to sign up today!
