Wednesday Wonders are interactive programs designed to spark the curiosity of young children. This session from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Ben Stout House in Turkey Run Park, is for elementary aged (recommended ages 5-9) learners. Offering a different natural history wonder each week, we will cultivate critical thinking, scientific literacy, and stewardship of our natural surroundings. This hour-long program emphasizes learning through exploration and discovery outdoors combined with science experiments, activities, play, and art. Come prepared for the weather as we go outside for hikes, creek walks, and activities during all seasons.
Wednesday Wonders is an all outdoor program. Masks are not required outdoors. In the event of severe weather, the program will be moved indoors at the respective location, and masks will be required for everyone age 2 and over.
Wednesday Wonders location (recommended ages 5-9):
10:30 – 11:30 a.m. at Ben Stout House in Turkey Run Park
2:30-3:30 p.m. at PNC Achievement Center in Beckley Creek Park
*Topics will be the same at both locations in a given week. Each week these events are FREE to Parklands Members (but please RSVP below) and $5 for non-members (children and adults). Join us for these fun, early-childhood learning events!
This is a great perk for Parklands Members with young kids!
