Young children and their adult companions will discover exciting nature adventures at the new program, “Flanders Story Time,” sponsored by Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust, beginning September 7, 2012.
The story times are held on Fridays from 9:30 to 10:30 am at the Van Vleck Farm and Nature Sanctuary Trail House on Church Hill Road.
Weekly topics are designed to encourage children ages 3 to 5 and adults to explore nature, discover art and learn about farming together. Live animal demonstrations, specimens to observe and touch, crafts and nature walks on Flanders’ 200-acre campus are all part of investigating the great outdoors.
Day care classes, Mom’s groups and “play dates” are welcome to attend the story times. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
“Flanders Story Time” is free for Flanders’ members. The cost for non-members is $5 per person. So that there will be enough materials for every child to participate, advance registration is required.
To register, call Flanders at (203) 263-3711, extension 10. For more information, visit www.flandersnaturecenter.org.
