Children thrive in nature! Time outdoors benefits children socially, emotionally, physically and academically and we should strive to have our children outside for at least 90 minutes each day. DPNC programs are held outdoors year round and combine hands-on environmental learning with nature play, ensuring our children are not just learning about nature, but making memories that will help to build the next generation of environmental leaders. Each month DPNC offers programming for children of all ages. See below for upcoming programs.
