Oxbow’s Little Naturalist program is designed for ages 3-5, 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.

Due to Covid policy, no unregistered siblings may attend. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

"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
