Due to the COVID-19 restrictions facing us this summer, many children may find themselves without the summer camps that normally keep them busy. With in-person programs currently canceled for public safety, we’ve designed the Backyard Explorers program as part of our #AtHomeInNature initiative. This four-week series aims to provide children and their families with resources to explore and discover amazing things in their own back yards! Backyard Explorers will begin June 15 and continue through July 10. Each week will focus on a back yard nature theme targeted to children grades K – 5, including bugs, birds, mammals and plants. Each week, free content will be shared through SMP’s Facebook page, directing visitors to an educational video, an activity-based video (i.e. craft), and links to additional supplemental resources for each topic. : , OH
