Summertime is a great time for exploration and discovery Teatown-style!  Lace up your hiking boots, and join us to watch a butterfly, catch a frog, and be enchanted by bees.  Each adventure will start with a story and end with an activity, with plenty of time for discovery in between.


One frog jumped over the pond ker-plop!  What are the frogs in Teatown Lake up to?  We’ll take some nets and go on a frog hunt searching for the sounds of summer.
