Cove Caterpillars


A preschool program that focuses on nature!

Cove Caterpillars is a one hour hands-on nature program tailored to children's blossoming curiosity about the natural world. Start inside with an introduction to the weekly nature topic, followed by an outdoor walk where children learn about nature's treasures.
