After another “wildly” successful fall, the MVFN Young Naturalists are gearing up to begin their five winter/spring sessions for 2019!
Each month we explore a new nature themed topic through outdoor investigation, discussions, activities, and fun crafts! YN sessions are for children between the ages of 6-11 with a keen sense of curiosity about the natural world around them.
Ready to get your hands dirty? Here are the important details:
