The Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge will host Nature Tots for children from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

Children ages 3 to 5 are invited to bring their favorite adult and join a refuge naturalist for a morning of reading stories, going outside, making nature crafts and more. The program is free and open to the public. Register for this program to ensure that Neal Smith NWR has enough materials and personnel to provide the best learning experience for all participants.

During Saturday’s lesson, participants will learn about the wonders of weather. Nature Tots programs are educational programs especially designed for young learners. Lessons focus on engaging children’s senses and use hands-on and interactive activities. To register or learn more, contact Megan Wandag at (515) 994-3400 or megan
