Every two weeks the Heller Nature Center hosts Stories in the Woods for children ages 3-6 and their parents.

Weather permitting, a naturalist from the Heller Nature Center reads a story and takes everyone on a walk through the woods while discussing the theme of the week. Last week the theme was sounds.

“Grab something, make a sound,” Naturalist Marna Coleman said to the group as she gestured towards the box of instruments she brought for the occasion and dumped out on a nearby rock.
