Do you need a date night out? Drop off your kid(s) at Sylvester Manor for an evening of Wilderness Wanderings! Focusing on a nature-based theme, kids will explore subjects that usually aren’t observed during daylight hours. Led by educators Julie Fanelli and Mark Mobius, the group will wander to a secret location on the grounds of Sylvester Manor, noticing and talking about the evening’s topic.

Kids will enjoy an activity, cook dinner (hot dogs/s’mores), read a story and observe the natural environment.

July 11: Fireflies
July 30: Spiders
August 8: Herptiles (Turtles, Frogs, Reptiles, Salamanders)
August 20: Sounds of Nature

This program is for ages 5-8 years old and limited space is available. $100/child.

Please send your child with a water bottle and backpack and apply tick/insect repellant before arrival.

Meet at the parking area near the public restrooms.
