DCVA Young Naturalist Program
Our monthly educational nature immersion program is geared towards children from 5-10 years old with a focus on nature exploration, cultivating curiosity, and honing observational skills. We believe providing environmental learning opportunities will contribute to the next generation of environmentalists to carry on our mission for a cleaner future for our watershed, and our Earth!

Storytime by the Creek - The Willows Park (Radnor Township)
Author Brooke Smith sent us a copy of her book The Keeper of Wild Words that we will be featuring (and giving away to one lucky attendee!) at our first in a series of Storytime by the Creek events! Beginning in July we will be hosting story times at various parks in the watershed where we can enjoy the beauty of the creek while hearing a story and doing an activity together.
