Have you ever stood with your child under a majestic tree and admired its beauty? Or shared the excitement of hunting for leaf shapes or going on a nature treasure hunt? Come join the fun of outdoor adventures with the Ellerbe Creek Family Explorers! The GOAL of the Ellerbe Creek Family Explorers Club is to inspire children and their families to connect with the natural world while spending quality time together outdoors

Who: The Ellerbe Creek Family Explorers Club is open to all families in Durham and surrounding communities. Children and an adult family member attend together. The targeted age group will be 6 years old and under, although all family members, of all ages, are invited to participate

Why: Research shows that children benefit greatly from connecting with nature including increased math and science skills; strengthened powers of observation and imagination; and an increased sense of wonder, inspiring lifelong learning. It also shows that outdoor experiences like these help children build lasting connections to the natural world and to the adults with whom they share these adventures

Where and When: The Club meets one Saturday of every month at different natural areas in the community. Club events usually last about an hour. Families are encouraged to attend as often as schedules permit.

Each month you’ll receive an email letting you know about upcoming events.
