A Jasper County Conservation Knee-High Naturalists program on rain is set for 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Newton Arboretum.

The free program includes a story, an activity and group directed exploration. 

The Knee-High Naturalists program is offered the third Thursday of each month and designed especially for nature-loving tots from ages 3 to 5. The educational sessions are discovery based, focused on encouraging first connections with the natural world and instilling a sense of wonder that will last a lifetime.
