You and your weekend explorer will embark on an adventure following one of our educational themes (Bug Buddies, Bird Buddies, Nature Neighbors, or Pond Pals) at the River Center (11605 Old Friant Rd).
During the two-hour long session, your Weekend Explorer will go on a one hour nature walk, do a craft activity, sing fun songs, listen to a story, and end with a stimulating hands-on activity, all related to the day’s educational theme! Your child will leave the River Center with a curious mind wanting to know more about our local environment and its native species.
