We've extended the deadline to order our May Naturalist Kits! Order your kit by Sunday, May 9 at 9 PM. You can stop by the nature center during our open hours to pick up your kit once you've placed your order, or email Siobhan at to make other arrangements! 

Help your child learn about the natural world while playing outside! Sign up to receive PEEC’s Nature Playtime Naturalist Kit for May. The theme for May is signs of spring and pollination! This will be our final Naturalist Kit!

Kits are filled with hands-on nature activities connected to natural processes happening outdoors. Included are materials and naturalist information for four weeks of activities about the theme. You also will have the option to join PEEC’s private Facebook group where a PEEC educator will help introduce the activities and allow time for children to share their discoveries, while connecting with other children receiving the kits. Our monthly kits include materials for crafts, wildlife identification, movement games, stories, scavenger hunts, and science experiments. Activities can be completed at home or at a nearby natural area. These kits are designed for children ages 3 – 8 years old with adult support.

In May, explore features of the spring season, including flowers and insects. We'll do watercolor painting, watch the wind and clouds, make a bee hotel, look for bugs, play with flowers, and more. This month's kit will include the book Flowers Are Calling by Rita Gray. Additional contents include a scavenger hunt, watercolors, reeds for your bee hotel, construction paper, glue and a pipette for a flower pollination activity, an insect guide, a pitfall trap, and a bug box for examining your catches!

If multiple children will be using this Naturalist Kit, you can opt to purchase a kit with extra craft supplies at check-out. Extra craft packs are $5 each for this Naturalist Kit.

Scholarships are also available for our Nature Playtime Naturalist Kits. If you are interested in applying for one, please email for more information.
