Dedicated to the youngest bird and nature enthusiasts in our community, Fledglings and Friends Story Time offers children ages 2-5 an opportunity to hear stories about birds and nature, do fun crafts, explore the outdoors, and just have fun! Each story time has a different theme around which all activities are centered.
We now have THREE opportunities for participation:
Fledglings and Friends Story Time in the Nature Shop:
Come join us every third Wednesday of the month at 10:30am for a great time! All story times are $2 per child and first come first served. No preregistration or RSVP required.
Upcoming Story Times in The Nature Shop:
March 20: Flowers
Spring is here and so are the flowers! We'll read stories about springtime flowers, and plant our own flower seeds to take home.
Special Spring Break Story Time: April 10 in the Magnuson Children's Garden!
Join us in the Magnuson Park Children's Garden for some springtime exploration and fun! We'll explore the worm bin, solve a mystery, go birding, and of course, read stories!
April 17: Woodpeckers
The northern flickers are busy this time of year making a racket on everyone's metal chimneys and gutters. Come learn about them and other local woodpecker species with stories, a woodpecker craft, and real woodpecker specimens to look at and touch!
May 15: Baby Animals
What's cuter than baby animals in the springtime? We'll learn the names of various baby animals, read stories about them, make some fun art projects, and more!
