Tuesdays from 9am - 10am or 10:30am - 11:30am
Join us each week as we uncover the wonders of the natural prairie of Colorado. Each week provides a unique
learning opportunity, which will engage you and your child in investigations to stimulate curiosity, problem-solving and
a love of the natural world. Your child (2-5 years) must be accompanied by an adult as programs are catered to families
working together to explore nature.
Reservations are recommended. $5 / member; $6 / non-member.
***Value Packages are available--please ask us.***

Expeditions are a wonderful opportunity for you and your young learner to join in a building curriculum for six weeks. Throughout the six weeks, learning experiences build on existing knowledge, and the program provides a more in-depth perspective on the planned topic. Check back regularly for updated Expedition topics.
