Take a look at the exciting online programs below:

Jr. Naturalist program - a virtual summer camp for kids (of all ages!)
This summer, join Program and Educational Director Erica Max for a series of virtual educational experiences exploring the natural world here at the Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum. We will search for salamanders in the woods, catch cray fish in the pond for an up-close view, and visit with the variety of animals who live here. Enjoy these short "virtual" field trips via Zoom video conference and get even closer to the animals and nature than you could during a real visit!  Sessions will be held at 11:00 a.m. every Wednesday in July starting July 8th. Sessions will last 30-45 minutes. The Jr. Naturalist program is free but pre-registration is required. To attend any of the sessions, register through this event link and the Zoom invite will be sent one day before the event.
