Venue: Main Branch: Millenium Garden

Each Thursday this summer we'll be getting away from digital screens and heading outside to explore. We will observe the world around us, make nature crafts, and play outdoor games.
Children in grades 1-5 are welcome to attend.

Rain or shine, we will be outside. Please make sure that participants have appropriate outerwear, sunscreen, and water.
We will meet in the children's department before the start of the program.
