Public Programs

The following are descriptions of our recurring programs at Gorman Nature Center. For program dates, visit our newsletter page here
Moms & Kids

GNC's Moms & Kids program is a bimonthly program that has been held at Gorman Nature Center for over 30 years! Don't be confused by the name; Moms & Kids also welcomes dads, grandparents. uncles, aunts, etc. The program is designed for children ages 2-6, but older and younger siblings are welcome to attend and participate on a limited basis. This program is offered every Wednesday (except on holidays and during special events) with identical sessions at 9am and 10 am, and is focused on growth through outdoor discovery. 

Children are encouraged to bring a nature-related show-and-tell items with them each week, and adults are encouraged to add their names to our Moms & Kids email list so that they may receive program updates including: information regarding the upcoming program topic, tips and reminders for dressing appropriately for the weather, if the program will be mostly inside or outside, etc.
