River Legacy Nature School provides an environment that encourages a child’s inborn sense of wonder and curiosity to flourish. Indoor and outdoor explorations at River Legacy Living Science Center introduce children to the natural world.
Three-year-olds focus on the parks’ animal and plant life, exploring what those life forms need to survive. Opportunities to encounter ladybugs and snails, earthworms and opossums, native wildflowers and so much more build the students’ understanding of nature’s diverse life forms.
Four- and five-year-olds(not enrolled in kindergarten) turn their attention to River Legacy Parks’ habitats and how they meet the needs of creatures that live there. Among the units of study are The Living Tree, The Forest Floor, The Decaying Log, and The Creek. A growing understanding of the interdependence between animals and plants fosters an appreciation of nature’s delicate balance.
