Inspiring exploration, appreciation, and conservation of our natural world.

The Peepers Blog

The 2015/16 Peepers pre-kindergarten program is underway! We have an exciting lineup of themes this season, from busy squirrels to jolly pumpkins and colorful trees, there are topics that all Conservation Kids will enjoy.

The Peepers program provides an ideal environment for those pivotal “first nature experiences”—the ones that last a lifetime and set children down a path of curiosity, empathy and wonder.  Offered every Tuesday throughout autumn and spring, the 90-minute nature programs include stories, crafts, music, and outdoor discovery activities.
