School's Out, Nature's In: 
Spring Break 2024
April 15-19 (Ridgefield/Wilton Break)


School's out, but the woods are open! Children will explore vernal pools, search for amphibians, stomp in the mud, and scoop in the swamp! Each day will include exploration, hands-on activities, animal presentations, and nature crafts.
