(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.

In light of Covid-19, we’re taking additional measures to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff. Please review this important information to learn more.

*NEW LOCATION FOR EAST END PROGRAMS* Due to ongoing construction at our normal Taylor Creek Park meeting location, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be meeting at Stan Wadlow Park instead! Stan Wadlow is a nearby connected park within the greater Taylor Creek Park system. We’ll be able to park right next to our meeting spot and explore a new area! We hope this change makes things easier for families.

You can check if spots are available at any time by heading over to our registration site (click "Register" below). If a program is full, we encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see some turnover throughout the year and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.
