Free Nature Playgroup

Green Mountain Audubon Center is teaming up with Building Bright Futures to offer this special playgroup. Our goal is to support parents and caregivers with children ages birth to 5 in getting outdoors and exploring nature. Research shows positive impacts of spending time in nature on a child's physical, cognitive, and social development. Audubon provides children and families with quality opportunities to directly experience the natural world. Our 255 acres of forest, meadow, beaver pond, rivers, and peeper pond offer the perfect space to play and interact with other families and the outdoors.

Who: Children ages birth to 5 years old. Parents and/or caregivers must accompany. Sorry, no older siblings. Open to Richmond, Huntington, and Hinesburg residents.
When: Mondays from 9:30-11:00 am
Where: Meet at the Education Barn at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington.  If you arrive late, there will be a sticky note on the barn to tell you where we'll be exploring.
Note: Starting May 1st we will meet at the Green Mountain Audubon Center's Sugarhouse Field Kiosk off the Main Road in Huntington.

Cancellation Plan: If we need to cancel the playgroup we will post a notice on the Green Mountain Audubon Center's Facebook page by Sunday evening before Free Nature Playgroup.

Note:  Playgroup will NOT meet on the following dates:

  • February 20 (Presidents Day)
  • March 6 (School Vacation)
  • April 24 (School Vacation)
  • May 29 (Memorial Day)
