Wilbur D. May Arboretum & Botanical Garden

Little Sprouts is a program for children ages 2-5 to learn about nature through guided exploration. Each month has a different theme for children to learn about, like "Rainbow Leaves", "Goose on the Loose", and "The Wild World of Worms".

Little Sprouts occurs on Tuesdays from 10-11am and introduces children to concepts through a story, a sing along, a craft, and some outdoor exploration time. We are looking for volunteers who have a passion for nature and want to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards. If you enjoy working with children, or think you want to give it a try, volunteer today!
