Are you looking for ways to increase your child’s awareness of the natural world?  Join us for an adventure at Tyler for children ages 6-11 called The Magic of Nature!  You will be guided by Barbara Frank, one of our experienced Docents and a PA Master Naturalist.  Seeing our youth fall in love with nature is her passion.  She encourages everyone to use their senses to make discoveries while helping families encourage a lifetime of learning about the world in which we live.  Note weather and other unforeseen circumstances could impact the planned topic of the tour.

Beautiful Birds!

Bring a pair of binoculars with you if you have them!  Experienced birder Dave Eberly will join Barbara Frank to co-lead this program.  We’ll roam Tyler’s woods and fields as we look and listen for the many different kinds of beautiful birds at the Arboretum.  We’ll learn about birds and their habitats; maybe you’ll recognize some of them from your backyard! Then, we’ll find a nice spot to sit and do some drawings of what we see.  We will have children’s binoculars to lend.

This program is for children ages 6-11 with one supervising adult.  Check-in at the Visitor Center first, and then we will set off together to make discoveries and enjoy a short walk to an area that sparks our imaginations.  This is an outdoor activity, so please dress accordingly.  In case of rain, the group will meet in a protected area.
