The Magic of Nature: The Wonder of Trees

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday November 19

10:00 AM  –  11:30 AM


Take a walk with your child through the ‘Old Arboretum’ to explore a variety of different trees. As we touch the different bark, smell the sap and listen to the leaves, we will talk about how vital trees are for all life.

Are you looking for ways to increase your child’s awareness of the natural world? Then, join us as we begin a new adventure at Tyler for youth ages 6-11: The Magic of Nature! Barbara Frank, one of our experienced Docents and a PA Master Naturalist, will guide you. Seeing our youth fall in love with nature is her passion as she encourages everyone to use their senses to make discoveries while helping families encourage a lifetime of learning about the world in which we live. Please note that weather and other unforeseen circumstances could impact the planned topic of the tour.

This program is for children ages 6-11 with one free supervising adult. Check-in at the Visitor Center first, and then we will set off together to make discoveries and enjoy a short walk to an area that sparks our imaginations. This is an outdoor activity, so please dress accordingly. In case of rain, the group will meet in a protected area.
