Tuesday, March 19, 2019    9:00 am to 2:00 pm    Toddlers/preschoolers (1 year old to 5 years old) and their guardian are free.  Bombay Hook will be free for toddlers and their guardian on the 3rd Tuesday of the March, April, and May.  Children from 1 to 5 years old are developing cognitive skills and being in nature can expose them to sights and sounds that might go unnoticed in their everyday setting. Take your child on the wildlife drive, walk a trail, climb a tower, read them a nature book, and look at wildlife exhibits in the visitor center.  You are never too young to explore and learn.  This is a free self-study for families.  You can come anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
