We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, October 27, 2020.
Ladybug Nature Walks are a way for children ages 1-6 (with an adult) to explore a local Portland park or natural area with a trained educator. Walks are child-directed and open-ended. Nature educators walk with the children in small groups, encouraging them to learn through questions, observation, and play. Groups move slowly through the park, stopping frequently, so children have time to notice the plants and animals around them. Each participating child gets to borrow a small ladybug backpack for the walk containing a few simple tools for exploring.
Please read all details carefully. This is an in-person activity that will be following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Oregon Healthy Authority, and Multnomah County. All who are registered need to follow the COVID-19 protocols listed below.
Please read all details carefully. Our program has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Children attend with an adult and explore a local park with a nature educator using a few simple tools, their five senses, and observation skills. Walks help nurture the connection between children and the plants, insects, and animals around them.
***Each child and adult must register for the walk.*** (Only children ages 1-6 will be charged the fee. Due to limited group sizes because of COVID-19, we ask that children older than 6 do not attend.)
Adult participation is limited to one adult per paying child. (examples: 1 paying child = 1 adult; 2 paying children = 1 or 2 adults)
Requirements for participation during the COVID-19 pandemic:
