Family Nature Classes

Event at Washington Park Arboretum Graham Visitors Center





Tagged in: Outdoors & Adventure


Join us for a Family Nature Class and make connections with the natural world that will last a lifetime! Through science-based exploration and outdoor play, preschoolers ages 2-5 and their caregivers will experience the UW Botanic Gardens using their senses.

Each class begins with an opportunity to explore several learning stations based on the week’s theme where children can practice fine motor skills, sensory investigation, creativity, and pre-math and literacy skills. Station time is followed by an opening circle and hike where the group will play games, listen to a story and further explore the weekly theme. Family Nature Class is a great way to get outside with your preschooler, foster curiosity and explore the natural world.

Choose between a set of 4 classes ($60 for 1 adult and 1 child) or pick and choose individual days ($19/class for 1 adult and 1 child). Discounts available for siblings. Children under 2 and additional adults are free!

Classes are held 9:30-11:30am, Thursday-Saturdays between September 21-November 18th (excluding the week of Veteran's Day)
