Kids Programs

Little Explorers is a nature adventure for preschoolers at Mebane’s parks and trails. 

Each session, we will begin with a nature-themed activity, take a walk on one of our trails, and end with a nature themed book. Children must be accompanied by a caregiver, and of course, wear boots and sneakers that can get a little dirty. 
Cost: FREE!
Age: Designed for six and under but older children are welcome

What is this program? Little Explorers is a free program presented in conjunction with Mebane Trail Rangers. It is a nature-based hour intended to both excite and educate children with rotating outdoor themes such as changing leaves, pollinators, insects and more.
