Join us in the Gardens to learn more about the natural world around us. Each session will engage a young naturalist in hands-on learning as we closely study a topic while enjoying the Gardens and Grounds of Reynolda. Earn a Reynolda Young Explorers "badges" and a "field guide" for each session you attend. 

Pre-registration required; participants will receive an email prior to the program with the location for each. Reynolda may take photos for archival and promotional reasons during the program.

If you do not want your child photographed, please email the program leader, Janie Bass, at in advance of the program.

For children ages 2-5, accompanied by an adult.
