Mom’s Groups / Play Groups

Mom’s groups and playgroups are always welcome at the Nature Discovery Center. There is something to capture the imagination and curiosity of every child … whether they are into reptiles or butterflies, looking at specimens (and each other) through magnifying lenses and microscopes, or reading books and solving puzzles.

The Nature Discovery Center offers a Nature Program Sampler designed with play groups in mind. Download our Mom’s Group / Play Group package flyer here (PDF).

These play group inspired programs give parents and toddlers a chance to explore various themes of nature together. The half hour to forty-five minute long program include a guided nature walk in Russ Pitman Park, story, puppets, and a guided tour through the Center’s two Discovery Rooms, where children have up close encounters with small animals.

You will appreciate our small size, comfortable, homey atmosphere, and toddler-friendly Discovery Rooms.  A bathroom with a changing table is conveniently located nearby.

There are two safety considerations to be aware of when you visit the park:
•  Mosquitoes can often be an annoyance. Please bring repellant with you!
•  Poison ivy does grow in some of the wooded areas of our park (marked with warning signs). Help us keep your children safely on the trails at all times.
