Laumeier Sculpture Park's 105 acres are home not only to a collection of sculptures, but also to many birds, insects, frogs, mammals and plants. Parents and littles ones (ages 1-3) are invited to gather for an "all senses engaged" exploration of the natural environment of the Park. Nature + Me starts with a story time, followed by activities and outdoor play based on the day's theme.
Nature + Me is one of Laumeier Sculpture Park's new Pre-K programs, along with Stroll + Stretch + Play, designed to provide parents and caregivers the opportunity to explore art and engage with nature through creative and healthy, stress-relieving activities.
Nature + Me sessions are set for June 14, June 28, July 12, July 26, August 9 and August 23 (second and fourth Thursdays of the month) from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Cost is $10 for one adult and one child ages 1-3. Or, purchase a Drop-In Card and get six sessions for $50 or 12 sessions for $100. Registration is not necessary.
