Do you have a curious toddler that loves all things outdoors? Then this is the event for you!

Toddler Tales, presented by Nahant Marsh Education Center (4220 Wapello Ave Davenport), is a great way to introduce young children, ages 3-5 years old, to the wonders of the outdoors! Each second Tuesday of each month, through October, Nahant Marsh educators will lead a nature-themed story, craft, and outdoor adventure.

There are two sessions available for your convenience, one from 10 – 11 a.m. and one from 2 – 3 p.m. Children should be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Activities and locations may change due to weather, flooding and other unforeseen events.

Cost: $5.00 per child or $3.00 with a Nahant Marsh Membership.

Register by calling (563) 336-3370.
