Nature Adventures for Children

Join us Thursday, 1 to 3 p.m. for a hands-on nature program. Each month we’ll focus on a new nature topic. We’ll explore our nature topic indoors using investigations, crafts, and activities and outdoors in Broad Meadow Brook’s beautiful 430-acre wildlife sanctuary. These classes will provide in-depth learning in a supportive social environment. (Homeschool classes for 8-16 year olds meet at the same time.) For ages 5 to 7 without a parent. Fee: $10 members, $14 nonmembers. For more information and to register, call 508-753-6087.

Wave goodbye to winter

Homeschool Program will be held Thursday, 1 to 3 p.m. Will the snow be melting or will we be preparing for another storm? The weather isn’t always predictable, but we’ll still look for signs that indicate the departure of winter and arrival of spring. Broad Meadow Brook’s homeschool programs offer a friendly, cooperative learning environment for people of all ages. Our homeschool programs are designed for the homeschooling family. Parents are welcome to attend, or students may stay on their own if a medical form is on file with the sanctuary. At the end of all programs, students will receive follow-up information and activities so the learning can continue at home. Fee: $10 members, $14 nonmembers. For more information and to register, call 508-753-6087.

Preschool story and nature hour

The theme is dinosaurs for Friday, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Enjoy an hour of nature-themed fun with your youngster. We’ll read an engaging storybook, make a craft to take home, and walk on one of the sanctuary’s beautiful trails with Lead Educator Chris Eaton. Participants are invited to stay for an additional half hour for free play and socialization in the classroom or play yard. For ages 2.5 to 5 years old.  Fee: adults free, $3 child members, $4 child nonmembers. For more information and to register, call 978.464.2712. Sponsored by Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary.
