County Conservation will offer free nature program for toddlers Oct. 14

TIFFIN– Join Johnson County Conservation for a program created with toddlers in mind. Nature Buds programs are for children three to five years of age and include activities, crafts and outdoor time. The program will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Conservation Education Center (CEC) located in F.W. Kent Park near Tiffin.
October’s Nature Buds program is titled “Seedsational.” Little ones will discover what seeds look like up close, learn how they move and where to find them. The program encourages adult/child interaction with activities specifically designed to do so, therefore one adult to every two participants is required. Participants should dress for the weather and be prepared to get a little dirty.
This program is free but registration is required by Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 4 p.m. To register or for more information contact Naturalist Sydney Algreen at the Conservation Education Center (CEC) by calling 319-645-1011, or emailing salgreen@co.johnson.ia.us.
F.W. Kent Park is located at 2048 Hwy. 6 NW in Oxford. Participants should meet at the CEC in the northeast corner of park.
