Fall Programming at Beaversprite

Friday Family Adventures
Join us every Friday morning at Beaversprite Nature Center for family fun! Each adventure begins with a story and related activity and/or craft, then it is out into the woods for a naturalist-led exploration. The fun starts at 11:00 AM and lasts approximately an hour. Pack a lunch and picnic at the nature center following the program. The fee is $5.00/child. This program will take place primarily outdoors so please plan accordingly. Pre-Registration for all programs is required and may be done by emailing mary.hall@uticazoo.org or filling the form below.

Each week’s theme is below:
