2nd Saturday Outdoor Family Activities

Outdoor Activities

All ages are invited to enjoy new outdoor activities while visiting the Piney Point Lighthouse and the St. Clement’s Island museums on the second Saturday of the month throughout the year.

These activities encourage visitors to explore nature and the outdoors through curiosity and play.

Modeled loosely after “Forest School” learning styles in Denmark and Sweden, the Nature & Forest Play for All Ages Series encourages discovering nature through hands-on, tactile, “no right or wrong way to play” experiences. Age is not a factor; adults need to connect with nature in relaxing, simple ways, just as much as children do.

Themed activities will be held on the following dates and times. Price is included in regular museum admission. Save the dates and call ahead to pre-register.
