Wetlands Park with Kids

Wetlands Park is great for kids!


The Wetlands Park Nature Preserve has stroller-friendly paved and unpaved trails. These trails are for pedestrians only (no bikes, no dogs) to allow for better chances of wildlife viewing and to ensure the safety of our visitors. 

View our Visiting With Kids brochure for suggestions for short routes with young ones.


​June 22-28 is National Pollinator Week
Join us on Facebook and Instagram for information and a celebration of Pollinators!

What are pollinators?
Pollinators are animals including birds, bees, bats, butterflies, moths, beetles that move pollen from flower to flower.  Wind can pollinate, too. Pollination makes it possible for plants to produce fruits and seeds. 

Pollinator activities and resources for kids:
Craft for Kids: Bearpoppy Necklace
Game for Kids: The Bee Bootie Boogie
5 Things Kids Can Do to Help Pollinators

You can also post your Wetlands Park plant and animal pictures to iNaturalist and add them to the Wetlands Park Nature Journal
