Hunterdon County Parks Department Winter Nature Club for Kids

The popular Hunterdon County New Jersey Parks Department Winter Nature Club will introduce your child (ages 4 through Kindergarten) to many exciting nature topics.

A professional Park Naturalist will guide the children during hikes as they discover the diverse field, forest, and pond habitats. Other hands-on activities include science experiments, field games, and take-home craft projects. The children will be able to observe the subtle changes from week to week as we progress through the season. Through  explorations, children will also hone their attention to detail as we observe the colors, shapes, textures, and sounds of the natural world.

Be sure to dress your child for the outdoors so that the whole group will be able to enjoy our lessons fully. The Parks Department strongly recommend old clothes and sneakers/boots that can get dirty.

Nature Clubs meet rain or shine. In inclement weather, they shorten the outdoor adventures to spend more time inside. Each session is limited to eight children to ensure a quality experience for the participants.

The Department of Parks and Recreation reserves the right to cancel any session due to low enrollment, and give a full refund.

Registration for the program is required and is first come – first served.

For a registration form download one at click on “Parks & Recreation,” or stop in at the Arboretum located at 1020, Rt 31 in Lebanon.
