This half-day program is meant to cultivate a sense of curiosity, imagination and wonder in your child. Each morning, we’ll seek out the plants, animals, birds, fish, trees and insects who call this river home, and we’ll learn what each of them needs to survive and thrive along its edge. Each session will include ample time for natural exploration guided by our knowledgeable and compassionate staff. We’ll also play a lot of games, sing a bunch of songs, and make a ton of art. This program makes excellent use of several riverside locations, including Waterfront Park, Cashman Park and the Clipper City Rail Trail. On Friday, this program will culminate with a harbor tour of the Merrimack River aboard the Yankee Clipper. You are welcomed and encouraged to attend this special boat ride with your child at no additional cost.
