Little Tadpole Series: Night Animals that Fly

Welcome to our Little Tadpole Series!  This series will encourage younger children (ages 3 – 5 years old) to notice nature and the world around them.  Included in every program will be a short story and a “brain break” (physical/sensory activity).  For every program, please dress your children in outdoor clothes that are acceptable to be dirty, painted on, muddy, and/or possibly wet.  Closed toe shoes that do not easily fall off, are also highly recommended.
