What is a Ladybug Walk?
Great question! Our trained Preschool Naturalists take children ages 2-5 (or so) on Ladybug Walks to give them the opportunity to explore a local park or natural area in a developmentally appropriate way. Children wear a Ladybug Backpack which contains a few tools that make the walk more engaging. During Ladybug Walks, we hope to introduce adults to some simple, useful tactics for nature exploration with children in the future. We often hold worms, dig in the soil, smell leaves and touch slugs!
