Arrange a private Ladybug Walk for your group – great for preschool field trips, day care activities, and birthday parties!
Our private Ladybug Walks give your group of children ages 2-5 a chance to explore with our highly-trained, specialized Preschool Naturalists. Not only do our Preschool Naturalists know nature, they also know what makes young children tick! Children borrow our sought-after Ladybug Backpacks for their walk while they engage in nature exploration, learning and play.
