Wilderness Sprouts: Great Groundhogs
Feb 2 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

It’s Groundhog Day! Let’s celebrate by learning about these super-digging members of the squirrel family.  Can they really predict the winter weather?

Wilderness Sprouts is a monthly program designed for children ages 3-5 and their adult. Each month will feature a different topic and include a lesson and experiment, a craft, and an outdoor adventure (weather permitting.) Adults will be given activities to continue the learning experience at home.
