Childcare Programs

Our Naturalist-led Wetland Adventures programs for Childcare Centers are offered November—March and June—August. Heckrodt Wetland Reserve also provides an environmental lesson with lots of hands-on opportunities! In summer, Park and Rec departments can get in on the action too!

Too cold and snowy to travel? Our Roving Naturalist will come to your center from November through March!

Advanced reservations required! Contact Heather Weigelt at [email protected] to schedule your childcare program.
