Starting Out Wild

Starting Out Wild is an educational program that fosters toddlers’ love of nature. Offered to children 18 months to 3 years old, the program’s basic format has four parts, including: learning, hiking, a craft project and snack. The nature-filled lessons are highlighted with music and movement, plus a story on both ends. It’s a fun-filled morning in the park for the little ones and their parents.
