Green Start Play Days
Nearby Nature believes that healthy kids and families should have opportunities to connect with nature from the VERY beginning! Green Start Play Days provide a perfect forum for you and your little ones (through age five) to enjoy outdoor play and discovery in an engaging, safe, and beautiful environment -- our Learnscape Garden and Outdoor Classroom.
Green Start Play Days happen 6+ times a year, usually on weekday mornings (before naps!), outdoors, rain or shine. (We have covered space as well if it's really wet.) When you join us for one of these events, you and your young one(s) will enjoy unstructured (but supervised and safe) nature play, pre-school crafts, storytelling, garden goodie sampling (when things are growing), and simple games. Each event has a different theme, but in truth, we let the kidlets lead the way! If we find a cool bug, it's BUG DAY! If the birds are singing, we sing along.
Green Start Play Days are FREE for members and just $5/family for non-members. To join us at the next event, see our calendar here.
Nearby Nature also occasionally hosts Green Start Workshops for people interested in connecting their youngest outdoor explorers with nature. Click here to learn more.
