February Vacation Drop Off Day

Friday, February 18- FULL

Join us for a great morning of exploration at the SM&NC! February can bring snow, maple syrupping, and great winter birds! We'll explore what's happening outside in our forest and look for early signs of spring. Although we'll have our own private classroom and bathroom, we'll be outside as much as possible.

Please bring a nut-free snack and drink.

Limited to 8 students.
Children must wear masks whenever inside or whenever they cannot distance outside.

Additional information will be sent to registrants.
