About 

Tiny Turtles is an outdoor nature program designed specifically for 4 and 5-year-olds! This class meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month, March through May, from 10:00 am until 11:30 am. Children will have the opportunity to explore the natural world around them on the Hunt Utilities Group Resilient Living Campus while learning about healthy foods and gardening, animals and their habitats, trees, and so much more! Classes will be held entirely outdoors, so it is imperative that kids are dressed for the weather each day, whether that means mud boots and raincoats or full winter gear.
