Bauer Explorers:

Monthly Enrichment Afternoons

Ages 5-9



This 3 hour class is designed to connect children with seasonal nature study, creative arts and messy maths exploration. We promote respect for plants, animals, the land, and each other through a nurturing environment. Hikes, live animal encounters, and open-ended wild nature play are integral to our learning each session.

Time: 1:00-4:00 PM, various Tuesdays throughout the year

Price: $45 per session (Membership discounts apply for Pacesetter level or above)
