Programs for Little Ones – Fall 2018

This fall we will be changing the times for the Puppet Powwow so that it will happen just before Nature Strollers.  You are not required to attend both programs but are more than welcome to.  

Joann’s Puppet Powwow

Ages: Families

9:30 – 10:00am

October 8th – Nocturnal Animals

November 5th – Fall Changes

Have a seat around our puppet theater in Joann’s Outdoor Classroom as our naturalists present a series of puppet shows! Every series will revolve around a central environmental theme such as life cycles, hibernation, or pollination. Puppet shows will be followed by activities that enhance the topic addressed in the show.

No registration required but may be canceled due to weather. Call 615-799-5544 for information.


Nature Strollers

Ages: 18 months to 5 years

10:00am to 11:00am

October 8th – Nocturnal Animals – Forest Night, Forest Bright – by Jennifer Ward 

November 5th – Fall Changes – In the Middle of Fall – by Kevin Henkes

Encourage your little one’s curiosity with nature and the outdoors! During the program, we will read a book, sing songs, play games, make a craft, and go on a child friendly hike.  Each month there will be a new theme.

No registration required
