Family Fun Events at Woodcock Nature Center
Woodcock Nature Center, a nonprofit nature center located at 56 Deer Run Road in Wilton, is offering many upcoming programs for family fun. The center is situated on 179 acres of state-protected land with three miles of trails traversing a mixture of habitats, including woods with stands of maple, beech, oak and hickory trees, a pond and wetlands.
On February 24 from 4:30 to 6pm, Mindful Outdoor Guide Cindy Olsen will host the “Mindful Winter Forest Walk”. Olsen, of Cindy By Nature, will lead a mindful winter walk in the forests of Woodcock Nature Center. Participants should wear extra layers of clothing to stay comfortable while gathering safely to enjoy the winter sunset. Olsen will provide blankets, seat cushions, hot tea and other warming comforts. ($20 per attendee.)
On Thursdays and Fridays in February and March, from 9:45 to 11:15am, the Center hosts “Mommy & Me and the Natural World”. Toddlers and their caregivers will explore the natural world through nature walks, animal encounters, stories and art projects. Each class will include outdoor activities related to that day’s nature theme. For ages 1 to 3, with a caregiver.
On February 4 and 25 and March 11, from 1:30 to 3pm, the “Into the Forest: Nature School Series” will be held for ages 3 to 5, with a caregiver. This program brings children into nature to help build confidence, obtain basic wilderness skills and most importantly, allow them to get dirty and have fun outdoors.
The Center’s building houses local and exotic snakes, frogs and lizards, as well as a few rehabilitated birds of prey. They also offer summer camp, after school and other programs for children and school groups.
