Fall Family Nature Programs:
Are you and your kids on the computer too much these days? Are you looking for outdoor nature -focused adventure? If you are a family with K - 5th grade students, please come join us on an adventure!

Explore the Shore: Though it isn't always obvious the treasures we find on the beach can tell us stories about the land, the ocean and the beach itself. 

While strolling Laudholm Beach, we will explore the shore through questions about and investigations of sand, the wrack line and found objects.

Program will start at the Gazebo with a quick introduction to tides before we head down the trail (~15-20 min walk) to the beach. 

Hats, water, sunscreen, a small bucket (w/handle) and good beach walking shoes are recommended. 

*Please dress for the weather and bring layers. It can be windy/chilly or sunny at the beach!
