Friends of the ACFL Family Hike: Small Wonders

August 13 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

A-Avenue Trailhead

Please register for this event at the link on our event webpage.

If you’re wondering if nature school could be right for your family, or if you’re simply looking for a way to get outside with your little one, come join Forest Educator Beck in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands with your pre-preschooler for Small Wonders!

We’ll take a nature walk, hear a story, and use our senses to observe nature. Small Wonders helps children develop a sense of comfort while in the outdoors and helps caregivers observe and nurture their child’s curiosity. Together, we’ll all delight in the natural world.

You are welcome to bring a snack for your little one to eat on the trail, but please do not share food with others during this time. During the hike, wearing masks (2 year-olds+up) will depend on current state regulations and possible surges of Covid-19, so be prepared to mask up if needed. We will still socially distance on the trail, refrain from sharing materials, and have each family fill out a Covid-19 attestation form at the beginning of the program.

Small Wonders is designed for babies in carriers, early walkers, and toddlers 3 years and under. Caregivers are required to attend and be fully present throughout the class.

Meet at: A-Avenue Trailhead (see maps in online form)

Date: August 6 or August 13

Time: 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Participants: Up to 20 registrations per date (1 caregiver + 1 child = 1 registration)

Cost: Free

Small Wonders is a partnership program between Friends of the Forest (https://www.friendsoftheacfl.org) and Fidalgo Nature School (https://www.fidalgonatureschool.com).
