Children’s Programs

Programs that Foster a Sense of Wonder

Share the wonders of nature with your children at Wehr Nature Center. Our programs encourage discovery and curiosity and help children build a personal connection to nature.

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder …he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.

-Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder
