Looking for something to do on Saturdays this fall? The Highlands Center for Natural History is now accepting enrollment for Knee-High Naturalists and Nature Nuts.

The Highlands Center for Natural History is accepting registration for two unique programs that lead children outdoors to make their own discoveries of the fascinating and fun world of nature.

The first program, Knee-High Naturalists is a hands-on, outdoor program for preschoolers and their parents. Instructor Lisa Packard leads children in animal role-play, nature crafts, stories, songs and a snack as they explore our unique forest friends of the Central Arizona Highlands. This is a great opportunity for parents to spend quality time with their young children outdoors on Saturday mornings in a beautiful location.

Nature Nuts is the Highlands Center's monthly nature club for children 6 to 12 years of age. Children spend a morning outside developing their awareness of the natural world through exploration, discovery, art and science.

More Kids in the Woods and Leave No Child Inside are both national movements encouraging programming that brings children outside and experiencing nature. This opportunity exists right now in Yavapai County at your local nature center, the Highlands Center for Natural History. Enroll children today so they can experience the wonder in the Prescott National Forest.

Knee-High Naturalists (ages 3-5) begins Aug. 4 and continues the first and third Saturdays through November. There are two times to choose from 9:30 to 11 a.m. or 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Nature Nuts (ages 6-12) begins Aug. 18 and continues the third Saturday of each month through November. Meeting time is 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Registration and enrollment fee is required. Register early, as space is limited. For more information, call 776-9550 or visit www.highlandscenter.org
