The public is invited to attend a Nature EdVenture Program during the month of March with the Highlands Ranch Metro District. A Park Ranger will introduce the youngest explorers to animal coverings, teach kids about volcanos, and lead an all-ages full moon hike at Fly’n B Park.
Little Nature Explorers – Animal Coverings, March 15 – Fur, feathers and scales! These coverings protect and help animals. Kids can touch real animal coverings and make a craft to take home. Open to ages 3-5. Fee: resident $12, nonresident $14. Registration required.
School of Rocks – March 24 – Have you ever been stuck between a rock and a hard place? Dead plants have been there and were transformed into coal that we now use as a resource.
