Wednesday Wonders

Wednesday Wonders are interactive programs designed to spark the curiosity of young children. Each week, we’ll explore a new science wonder with a story, craft, hike or related science experiment. This program is best suited for early learners (families with children under the age of 7).

Wednesday Wonders is offered at two separate times and locations each week. Weekly activities are FREE to Members (but please RSVP) and $5 for non-members (children and adults). Register at www.theparklands.org/events.

Parklands Members receive a discounted family program price! To become a member, click here.
