Looking for a fun, safe, and educational night for the kids while you enjoy an evening out on the town?  Then send your kiddos to Kids Nature Night at the Arboretum!  Kids Nature Night is for children aged 5 through 12 who will enjoy a night full of science, games, arts and crafts, movies and more.  Please note all attendees must be potty trained.  

For this Kids Nature Night the theme is Disco Buggy Night! Kids will dance the night away while learning about the far-out insect world. Topics will include how some insects are "stayin-alive" in some of the most harsh conditions found on earth, and will learn about the different parts of an insect so they can design their own funky bug to take home! Sliding down with platform shoes or bellbottom pants is encouraged, we hope to see you and your child boogie on down here!

Kids will have free range of the Jewett Interpretive Center (with supervision of course!) to move freely between activities and stations throughout the evening. Towards the end of the program, everyone will gather in the Gardenview Room to watch a nature movie related to the theme. Kids can bring their own blankets and pillow to get cozy during the movie while waiting for pick up.

All attendees will be fed pizza (pepperoni, cheese, and hawaiian) with lemonade and passion-orange-strawberry-guava juice. If your child is a picky eater or has dietary restrictions, feel free to send along some snacks or a meal for them to enjoy. Please mark any and all allergies on the health and registration form so their leaders have the information ready.

Each child needs a separate Health and Registration Form filled out and brought to the event for each year. If your child has attended a Kids Nature Night in 2019 or 2019 Nature Day Camp then you do not need to fill out the form again. If this is your child's first Kids Nature Night in 2019, the link to the form can be found here.
