Preschoolers explore the natural world through a combination of stories, hikes, songs, games and/or crafts. Nature Tykes is for 3-year olds with their parent or caregiver. Little Naturalists is for 4 & 5-year olds on their own (while parents or caregivers wait in the nature center or explore the preserve). Registration is $5 per child, per session. Advance registration for either program is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email​ us to register.
