Join us on a fun, exciting adventure! River Buddies Weekend Explorers takes your child on a journey like no other. As they adopt their new role of explorer, your child will go on a nature walk along the Hidden Homes Trail, sing fun and exciting songs, listen to a story about that day’s program theme, and participate in both a craft and hands on activity that are educational and fun! Your child will learn all about the local environment and animals that reside with us here at the River Center.
This program will focus on the Pond Pals theme:
- Hidden Homes Nature Trail: observe the many plants and animals that live on site and visit several larger-than-life animal homes along the way.
- Story and Song Time: learn about the life cycle of a frog, observe models of different life cycle stages, and sing a song about life as an amphibian.
- Pond Life Exploration: get up close to the wildlife that live in the cistern pond on the River Center property; use nets to catch frogs and fish and observe them up close before releasing them.
- Build-A-Pond Craft: create your very own pond magnet for a froggy friend to live in.
