Rockfall Nature Explorers
Outside nature fun for kids in grades 3 to 6
Come enjoy some outdoor time one afternoon per week at the Rockfall Forest and Wadsworth Falls State Park with Everyone Outside! At Nature Explorers, we enjoy connecting with the natural world around us as nature detectives, scientists and artists. This fall we will explore the woods, build shelters, play games and use viewing scopes to examine insects and water creatures. Students from Memorial School can be signed out by EO staff and walk over to the meeting spot directly after school. Students from all elementary schools and home-schooled students welcome!
