- Nature and Garden Backpacks - These backpacks
are filled with bug catchers, magnifiers, nature guides, sketch
pads, journals and more. They are great for family and school group
activities - and they're FREE for use on the grounds!
- Books N Blankets - Looking for a laid-back way
to enjoy a beautiful afternoon with the kids? Ask our Visitor
Center staff for a Book N Blanket Basket. Each basket contains a
comfy blanket and a handful of nature/garden-themed children's
books. Then, find a nice shady spot, spread out the blanket, and
enjoy sharing a special book together. And if you have a favorite
book you think we should offer, let us know. We're always looking
for good additions.
- Scavenger Hunts - Also available at the
Visitor Center are several scavenger hunt cards for kids. There's
one for Yew Dell architectural details, one for unusual plants and
others on the way.
- Saturday Morning - Children in the Dell
Programs - Each Saturday (10:30am - noon) April through
September, Yew Dell offers this program just for kids. They'll
enjoy nature walks, planting vegetables in the garden, catching
insects and a host of other garden and nature inspired activities.
Each session is lead by an experienced educator. Drop ins are
welcome but preregistration is encouraged to guarantee a spot.
