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!
