Help the Kids Become Junior Naturalists February 15
Nature is full of wonders. Today’s kids don’t know a lot about how amazing nature can be, because they’re busy with their phones and their tablets and their gaming consoles. Introduce them to the glory of the outdoors by taking them to the Junior Naturalist Series at Jefferson Memorial Forest.
The Junior Naturalist program is designed for kids aged 7 to 10. The day will have a theme that includes hands-on activities. The program is designed to be exciting so kids will truly be wowed by nature. They’ll hike, explore and observe all the wonders that the outdoor world holds. Kids get a chance to be active and to socialize, and for a little while they’ll put away all their electronics and simply connect with the world around them.
Kids will participate in the program from 10 am to noon. It’s free for children to attend, but parents are asked to pre-register. Call the welcome center of the Jefferson Memorial Forest to register your child. February's theme is animal adventures. Children will learn about the native wildlife in Kentucky and they’ll get a chance to see animals up close.
The Jefferson Memorial Forest is at 11311 Mitchell Hill Road. That's just a few blocks away from Prairie Village, a very kid-friendly neighborhood that's surrounded by some pretty great natural wonders of its own. After kids explore the wilds of the forest, go see all the beauty in Prairie Village.
