PP&R Ladybug Nature Walk (10:30am) – Registration Required

April 27 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

$3 – $9

Ladybug Nature Walk at Powell Butte Nature Park – 10:30am 

Ladybug Nature Walks are a way for children ages 18 months-6 years (with an adult) to explore a local Portland park or natural area with a trained educator. Walks are child-directed and open-ended. Nature educators walk with the children in small groups, encouraging them to learn through questions, observation, and play. Groups move slowly through the park, stopping frequently, so children have time to notice the plants and animals around them. Each participating child gets to borrow a small ladybug backpack for the walk containing a few simple tools for exploring.

Walks last one hour and are geared for children ages 2-6Children 18-24 months can register but will not be charged. If your child is a very young toddler, join us for the amount of time that works for you.

Please read all details carefully. This is an in-person activity that will be following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Oregon Healthy Authority, and Multnomah County. All who are registered need to follow the COVID-19 protocols listed below.
