Four seasons of family fun!

Polk County Master Gardeners and Friends of the Parks present four fun, activity-filled programs for kids in grades k-5. At each of the sessions, students will hear a topical presentation, have a guided tram tour through Circle B Bar Reserve, enjoy a snack and do a “hands-on” activity. Examples of topics are “insects and arachnids”, “bees”, “owls”, “our water cycle” and “reptiles”.
