Strap on your baby carrier and get ready for an adventure at Nature Babies. These free, 45-minute programs are designed for ages 12 weeks to 2 years and includes outdoor and sensory activities as well as a short group hike.
Parents are encouraged to use baby or toddler carriers during the hike, as many of the trails at The Nature Institute are not stroller friendly.
Every child who attends will take home a free book. Nature Babies is held at The Nature Institute on the third Wednesday of the month from 10 to 10:45 a.m.
Registration is preferred, but walk-ups are accepted. Register at thenatureinstitute.org
