June Bugs is the Rye Nature Center’s popular program for preschoolers in those first early days of summer. Children ages 3.5 through six years old will connect with nature through outdoor activities, arts and crafts, games, and hands-on ecology lessons. They will spend time on the trails of the Rye Nature Center and get to know our menagerie of animals.

Children are divided into groups by age and are lead by one naturalist and one or two assistants. All lead staff is certified in first aid, epi-pen administration and CPR. Groups are limited to 15 children to maintain a low child-to-staff ratio. Space is limited for this eco-adventure so reserve your child’s spot early!
