Saturday Nature Squad, Squad A (Spring 2023)
In an increasingly virtual world, Children's Saturday Programs offer your child the opportunity to be immersed in hands-on, in-person learning in an idyllic outdoor setting. Stroll through the forest, collect maple sap, hunt for newts in the pond, and savor signs of spring.

Designed for ages 5 through 13 years, these programs inspire children to learn about nature while encouraging curiosity, exploration, and wonderment. Children participating in the class should be kindergarten age and older. (For parents of five-year-old children, the hikes in this program are longer than that of our Green Sprouts program. Young five year old children are encouraged to participate in our Green Sprouts programs at our Nature Preschool).

Preregistration is required and includes the full series. Children must be potty trained. Caregivers will drop off their child for this program.

Program participants meet on four select Saturdays at our Rowe Woods' Visitor Center Auditorium from 9:30 am to 12 pm.

Program dates included in series:

• February 11

• March 11

• April 1

• May 6

Join our squad of fellow nature enthusiasts, and each month we’ll discover the wonders of the natural world together! Guided by passionate program leaders and surrounded by other youth who love the outdoors, children will have hands-on experiences in nature and explore seasonal changes on this monthly adventure. Children will be split into smaller, age-appropriate groups upon arrival.

Members $95; nonmembers $110 (includes daily admission).

By registering online, you agree to the following:

Placement Policy for Siblings/Friends: Children are split up into preassigned groups based on age and registrations. If your child has a sibling/friend registered in their program and you wish to place them in the same trail group, please indicate this on your child's online health form under the “Additional Information” section at least two weeks in advance of the start date of the series. If you wish for your child to be placed with a family member/friend whose ages are not within one year of one another, our tendency is to place the older child with the younger child’s trail group. The group that your child is assigned to will be your child’s trail group for the series.

Cancellations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the first date of the series. No refunds or transfers of fees will occur if the request is made less than two weeks prior to the series start. Programs continue, rain or shine.

Mask Policy: Masks are optional indoors and outdoors for all campers and counselors. All participants can choose to wear a mask at any time.

Covid-19 Policies: Cincinnati Nature Center will run advertised programs using consideration of recommendations made by the CDC and local health agencies. Current Covid-19 protocols can be found online on our website. Cincinnati Nature Center may update the status or format of programs and events based on Covid-19 conditions at the time of the program.

Please note that eligible discounts will appear in the cart after selections are made.
