Jr. Naturalist program - a virtual summer camp for kids (of all ages!)
Program and Educational Director Erica Max hosted a series of virtual educational experiences exploring the natural world here at the Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum. We will searched for salamanders in the woods, caught cray fish in the pond for an up-close view, and visited with the variety of animals who live here. You can enjoy these short "virtual" field trips through a set a video links listed below and on Youtube. Get even closer to the animals and nature than you could during a real visit!
