Event Description
(For children ages 5-12) Join us in Menomonee Valley for a summer program that is filled with educational adventures! Kids will be led by a bilingual Urban Ecology Center educator to build nature based arts and crafts, create self-guided research projects, and find new ways to engage in nature play- and so much more! Throughout this program the kids will be encouraged to be engaged, ask questions, and discover new things along the way. 

Pre-registration is preferred and appreciated, but we will accept drop-in registration. Those who pre-register will have priority on the 13 available spots. The program capacity is set at a maximum of 13 students per day. Drop-in for each day varies on a first come first serve basis after those that are pre-registered. The fee for Valley Explorers is on a season-basis. The Summer Valley Explorers includes all Saturday sessions from June 18 - August 27, 2022.
