The miniNaturalist Pre-K Program engages youngsters in the exploration of the natural world through fun hands-on activities and games. Emphasis is on observation, sensory skills, and imagination to cultivate a positive connection with nature at an age when children are just beginning to investigate the world around them.
Our summer-time version of the miniNaturalist Pre-K Program is held at three different community parks in Missoula. Each month we visit a park and spend time exploring the wild spots we find. Catch bugs with nets, paint with water colors, look under rocks and play games every first and third Thursday.
Date: Thursdays, August 7th & 21st
Time: 10:00-11:00 am
Location: Franklin Park in August
Admission: $3/$1 MNHC members, adults free
The miniNaturalist Pre-K Program will meet at the Montana Natural History Center, 120 Hickory St., September-May for the academic year.
