ECO Kids Discovery Days
The E-C-O stands for Every Child Outside, and that’s exactly where kids can be found during ECO Kids Discovery Days. Discovery Days take place the first and third Saturday of each month at Bernheim’s Visitor Center and include an On Your Own Challenge, Discovery Stations, and a Hike of the Day.
Pollywalks are designed for families of children aged 0-5 with stories, songs, and nature exploration. The best part is all of the action happens OUTSIDE! Pollywalks meet at the Silo Stage and include guided programming and free exploration for the youngest of nature lovers.
