discovering-the-box-turtle.JPGCornwall, N.Y. - Children ages 2-5 and their grandparents/parents/caregivers can explore the world of animals and nature together in this unique program. Especially designed to introduce a different animal each week, this unique program holds the attention of young children by utilizing crafts, songs, movement, stories, hands-on activities and outdoor exploration . Fascinating for both children and adults, it helps to build an understanding and respect for the animals and plants in our natural community.  It is also a great way to prepare young children for preschool!
