Nantucket 69.8°F Overcast
Nature Story Hour - Maria Mitchell

Nature Story Hour

Begin your day with this program specially-designed for the young explorer in your family! During each session, an MMA educator will read a nature or science related book, introduce you to one of the MMA’s animal friends, and we will finish up by making a craft or playing games related to the story. For the safety of our animals, we will not allow anyone to touch them. This is a reoccurring program, but the specific focus and materials provided will change each week.

This program is appropriate for children ages 3 and up, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration required. The program will take place in the courtyard of the MMA campus on Vestal St. There is street parking available throughout the surrounding neighborhood.

*Masks required

The event is finished.
