Little Naturalist

Welcome to little Naturalists

Oxbow’s Little Naturalist program is designed for ages 4-5, joined by a parent, and will explore the world in a series of programs lead by an Oxbow Meadows Environmental Educator. Each week will focus on a new topic that encourages working together with discovery, imagination, crafting, and exploring the outdoors.

"Before the classes our toddler refused to touch bugs and was scared of most animals, now she’s a regular explorer. These classes really gave her a chance to be brave and taught her the importance of bugs and reptiles. I recommend Oxbow to every parent I meet and it’s definitely one of our favorite places to visit!" - 2021 Parent Testimonial
