Hudson Highlands Nature Museum Knee High Naturalists Program
May 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until June 8, 2021
This 8 week outdoor program will continue to run weekly through June 8. Knee High Naturalists is a seasonal program designed for children ages 2-4 as an introduction to nature and organized activities. Children attend with their caretaker, who supports them during class time. Though HHNM has been unable to restart the Knee High Naturalist program on-site since the pandemic began, it has been in existence for well over a decade (with plans to restart on-site in the near future). No matter the location, the goals of the program are the same; To provide an environment for children of similar ages/development to socialize, to introduce children to basic classroom behavior and expectations, to increase children’s comfort level with the outdoors, nature, and animals, and to decrease barriers for caretakers when recreating or learning outside with children. Free for Newburgh residents. Registration required: 845-563-3600. Newburgh Free Library, 124 Grand St., Newburgh.
