Summer Programs Offered for Young Naturalists


Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission is offering two fun ways to get your children outside this summer.

The Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission's (WCPARC) Junior Naturalist & Nature Explorers programs encourage children to enjoy the outdoors and learn about nature. 

The Junior Naturalist Program is geared towards children ages 7-12, while the Nature Explorers Program is for kids ages 4-6.  In both programs, participants can earn an award by attending multiple nature programs and answering questions about what they learned. Their progress will be recorded in a “Nature Passport”, which they will bring to each event.  

WCPARC kids nature programs also include Nature Fun on Thursdays, which occur weekly from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. beginning June 26th.  Parents or guardians are expected to accompany young children.

These programs are available for free throughout the summer, but pre-registration is required!  For more information, please visit the program websites or call 734-971-6337 and ask to speak with a Parks Naturalist.
