Time to go outside and explore! Join the Highlands Biological Foundation’s Education Specialist, Paige Engelbrektsson, every Friday morning in October as she leads you and your little ones in the Knee-High Naturalists Outdoor Educational Program that includes stories, walks, and activities.
The program will be held from 10-11 a.m. at The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center, 3872 Dillard Road, Highlands, and will cover a different seasonal topic each week.
The suggested age for children is 3 to 5 years old, and adults must attend the program with their children.
All who wish to participate in this free outdoor educational program need to be prepared to go outside rain or shine.
Registration is required for each week, so there’s an accurate count of attendees and know how much material to have.
HBF can have up to 10 adults and children each week. If you have an older child who will need to accompany you to the program, please let us know.
HBF can provide a study space, Wi-Fi, and power so they can complete schoolwork or quiet activities. For more information or to register, please contact Paige at 828.526.2623.
COVID-19 Precautions: All program attendees, including children 2 years and older, are required to wear masks that cover the nose and mouth. We will have separate materials for each family, maintain physical distancing, and thoroughly sanitize the facilities.
