Programs for young children in community greenspaces

Outdoor Family StorytimeJoin us for live, in-person outdoor programming throughout the spring and summer. No registration is necessary. Find an outdoor location near you on the schedule below.

Outdoor Family Storytime is a 30-minute program designed for young children, infants to 5 years of age, and their caregivers. This program builds on early learning foundations that develop pre-reading skills and a joy of reading. 

Explore and Learn is a 60-minute drop-in program with fun learning activities and toys for young children, infants to 5 years of age, and their caregivers to play together.
