The Potomac Valley Audubon Society's popular Wee Naturalists program returns this month.
The program is designed to provide regular opportunities for children ages 3 to 5 to explore nature together safely under the guidance of an experienced PVAS instructor. At each session, children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent, other adult relative or guardian.
All sessions are held at the Society's Yankauer Nature Preserve, on Whiting's Neck in northeastern Berkeley County. Spring's sessions are from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays, March 21 and April 25, and Thursdays, March 22 and April 26.
In March, children will explore the theme "Let's Go Outside," a call to start exploring outside as winter is ending and spring is beginning. The April theme is "What Do April Showers Bring?" Here, children will explore the preserve's trails, looking for changes in nature brought about by spring rains.
The program is led by Suzi Taylor, of Sharpsburg, a veteran Audubon camp director who has a degree in environmental education.
Enrollment is limited, and registration is required. Online registration is available at www.potomacaudubon.org. The cost is $5 per child/adult team per one-day session.
