This summer, we have six new sessions, with each one a full 90 minutes of educational FUN!

New this year, the series coincides with our EXPLORE! series of programs for older kids (K–5), so siblings can enjoy adventures in the park at the same time.
NOTE: EXPLORE! programs may be taken individually, whereas Wee Wonders registration is full-series only.

Check back for the series flier.

Taught by educators from Buttonwood Nature Center (formerly The Institute), age-appropriate program activities make learning fun, and include exploring the outdoors, hikes, theme-related and nature stories, crafts, rhymes, songs, finger plays, nature games, and puppets.
Children must be accompanied by a parent.

For kids ages 2.5 years through 5. Pre-registration for full series required. Register with the form below.

Series Fee (includes all six sessions): $48/child Buttonwood/Institute member; $60 general public. Prepayment required and confirms your registration.

Wee Wonders is sponsored by Diana Dale, in memory of Mary Ann Payne and Helen Herr Moyer.

Underwriting support provided in part by Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; Marge Kiersz; Alma W. Oyer; and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin. Facility support courtesy of Washington Township.
