Little Stepper Hike #2 | The Art of Nature

Get outside with the whole family! These Little Stepper Hikes are a wonderful opportunity to enjoy fresh air and light exercise - while having fun and learning!

Did you know that spending time in nature inspires creativity? Join instructor Molly Scott* on Saturday Feb. 6th for a Little Stepper Hike where we will explore the connection between nature and art. Join us for the painted rock hunt, snow prints, winter mosaics and other ways to feel more creative and bring a little color into the heart of winter. Bundle up the whole family and head outside for a unique, socially distanced, inspiring class. Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided after.

Schedule: Saturday February 6th between 10:30am and 12:00pm (start times will stagger to enable social distancing)

Location: Swickard Woods/NAPLS Campus

Fee: $25/family
Register using the name of 1 adult, then include additional attendees in the notes.

Little Stepper Hikes for Families will typically occur once a month on the 1st Saturday of each month. We will also reserve the 3rd Saturday of the month as a backup date in case we have to postpone due to significant inclement weather.
