Saturday, June 6th, 10am-12pm

Be creative with science! The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture is hosting a special family program for kids age 3-5 and their families, and it’s all about art, nature, and science. Drop in anytime between 10am and 12pm to weave your own masterpiece, investigate rocks and minerals, and to explore plants and animals through a creative lens.

This program is made possible by a grant from Thrive By Five Washington, and is part of a collaboration between NOLS and the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture.


Storytime Rug at the North Olympic Library System

It’s never too early to introduce your child to the library! Library storytimes create critically important early literacy opportunities for young children, and offer parents and caregivers ideas on how to interact with the children in their life. Talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing are five practices reinforced at library storytimes that can make a difference in a child’s future success in school and life.
