  • Nature’s Treasures – Nature is a special place that holds many treasures for plants, animals, and people. Join our naturalist in a treasure hunt on Fenner’s trails. Then, create your own treasure for other animal and people visitors to find.
  • Nature Navigators – Party guests go on a short hike with a staff naturalist that is both fun and useful for getting children to think about their surroundings. Adults take a break from leading and a staff naturalist directs children to think about where they came from, where they are, and where they are headed. They will navigate a route on a trail map and tell the naturalist where to go in order to find landmarks and their way around the trails. The different ways in which animals navigate will also be discussed. This is an outdoor activity, please remind guests to dress for the weather and wear comfortable outdoor shoes.
