Have a whale of a time this winter with our Wee Wild Ones program!  Do you know a young child who loves to touch objects, ask questions and use their imagination? If so, join us on Tuesdays for Wee Wild Ones, a program where kids under 5 and their caregivers can explore the wonders of nature. Enjoy stories and puppet shows; explore real museum specimens; build with tree blocks; and much more.

This program is not designed for daycare, school or other groups.
