Private Backstage Pass Programs

Handmade gifts are always filled with the most heart because they’re made with love! We’ll bring nature indoors to create unique gifts made from natural items that we’ll collect on a nature walk. You’ll warm your families’ hearts with a picture frame for photo-worthy smiles for Papa, a nice napkin holder for Nana, a cool collage for your cousin in college, or whatever you make especially for them, especially by you!

Be a part of our Family Nature Club program! Each two-hour session will encourage families to safely experience and explore the wonders of nature together.
