This 90- minute outdoor class is for caregivers with children ages 0-3, designed for babies in carriers, early walkers and toddlers. Fidalgo Nature School staff will lead nature walks in Skagit and Island counties with various themes. It’s fresh each time so please join us more than once! Our learning goals at this age are a sense of comfort, curiosity, and delight in the natural world.
Note: Caregivers are an important part of their child’s experience. They are required to attend and expected to be fully present for the duration of each program. Please bring a snack and drink for a midway break.
All classes are FREE thru No Child Left Inside grant.
A big thank you also goes to Washington State Parks and Anacortes Community Forest.
