Join our Park Naturalist in exploring the natural areas of Washtenaw County through the Junior Naturalist Program!
Discover, investigate, and enjoy fun adventures in the outdoors!
This program is a year round series. For each program attended, children will receive a Junior Naturalist Badge. If children attend four programs during the year they will receive a prize of nature study tools to further their naturalist skills.
Each program is approximately 1.5 hours long and will be held outdoors - please bring water, sunscreen, insect repellent, weather appropriate clothing, and sturdy shoes.
Programs are free for Washtenaw County residents.
A vehicle entry fee is required for sessions at Independence Lake and Rolling Hills parks. Yearly passes are available for purchase.
Pre-registration is required. SPACE IS LIMITED! We will accept 10 children per program - check availability and reserve your spot here!
