(Ages 0 to 3 & Caregivers)

Oaks and Acorns

In Oaks and Acorns, we help caregivers integrate nature into their family’s everyday life. As a group, we take short wanders in nature, share stories and songs, and get to know the plants and animals in our area. We actively teach caregivers mentoring techniques and naturalist knowledge, while children learn experientially. It’s also a great chance to connect with a like-minded community, share experiences and advice, and build new friendships.
