Fidalgo Nature School's Free Caregiver-Child Class 


If you're wondering if Nature School is right for you, this is a great way to get just a taste!  Caregivers are required to attend and be fully present throughout the class.  

This class is designed for babies in carriers, early walkers, and toddlers 3 years and under.  Our teacher will lead the class in songs, nature walks, stories, and nature-based activities.  Our learning goals at this age are a sense of comfort, curiosity, and delight in the natural world.  

Fidalgo Nature School has partnered with Friends of the Forest to offer this class free.  Classes will be held in Anacortes' Community Forest Land.

Class dates for spring 2021:
