Tiny Green Trees, an eco-conscious child care center located on the edge of Milwaukee’s Three Bridges Park, will host Nature Kindergarten from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays, beginning September 9. The program will provide young children the opportunity to explore the Menomonee River that runs through Three Bridges Park, work on nature-oriented projects and visit the nearby Urban Ecology Center. Healthy snacks are provided.
“Research shows that children who experience extensive time in nature grow up to be healthier and happier and to develop a deep love for the Earth,” notes Lori Barian, the center director. “Tiny Green Trees’ Nature Kindergarten provides young children ages 3 to 6 with this important foundation.”
