Just For Kids


Forsythe has a lot to offer for children of all ages. We feature a one-of-a-kind Nature's Discovery Area, where kids can climb log steps, dig in a pile of dirt, build a birds nest, create a nature song, grow like a tree, and experience a memorable adventure in the outdoors. We welcome you to come explore as a family.


We have a Junior Refuge Manager program where you can earn a badge! Please print the booklet from the links below, complete the booklet, and when it's complete, return it to the Visitor Center to receive your badge! 


Junior Refuge Manager Ages 4 - 7

Additionally, nature backpacks can be borrowed free of charge from our visitor center, as well as binoculars and field guides.
