Greenbelt Family Nature Series Nurtures Conservation Ethic in Children
To help introduce our next generation of environmental leaders to the wonders of our natural world, Greenbelt is partnering with North
Shore Nature Programs to offer a special series of FREE naturalist-led family programs on Greenbelt properties.
Each program will have a seasonal focus and allow for kids, parents, grandparents and caregivers to experience local landscapes and nature, while learning and exploring the natural history of
each site. Some programs are limited to maximum of 25 people. Recommended ages are 6 and older.
February 13, 1:00-2:30 pm
Winter Tracking for Families
Join Greenbelt and North Shore Nature Programs for this winter tracking adventure! We'll look for signs of birds and mammals and learn where animals live and sleep in the winter.
Join Greenbelt and North Shore Nature Programs to discover wild edible plants! Our leader will show us how to find and identify a variety of delicious things to eat in fields, in the woods,
and maybe right in your backyard! Appropriate for all ages.
Join us to peek inside the beehives at Cox Reservation from the safety of a screened-in tent! This show and tell introduces children of all ages to the importance of bees and other
pollinators. In addition to the hive opening, we'll have snacks and activities scattered around the property. Bathrooms will be available. Bring a picnic and come enjoy the day!
