Young Naturalist Summer Programs – 2016

The Young Naturalist Program at the Lloyd Center is a way for children ages 5-7 to enjoy a fun-filled summer of exploration, discovery and wonder of the natural world around them. Throughout the summer, children will learn about the amazing creatures and habitats around the Lloyd Center using hands-on games, activities, crafts and trail walks.

Whether looking in the sea, sky, forests or ponds, we will be sure to have an exciting day experiencing the remarkable things in the world around us. Children may participate in a half-day session or extend their fun into a full-day adventure. Each session of the summer will incorporate new activities and crafts, so feel free to sign up your child for as many programs as you like!
