About the event
What is Dragonfly Nature Club?
Dragonfly Nature Club is a way to get kids in Jacksonville and St. Johns County outside exploring nature in a structured and safe way. Each session is unique, drawing from the seasons, the surroundings, and the kids involved to create a memorable experience.
What does a Nature Club session look like?
- Nature and Science mini lessons
- Focus activities to teach observation and attention
- Open ended activities to build creativity, teamwork, crafting skills, and more
A typical Nature Club session would start with a 5-10 minute mini lesson on a topic such as birds to get students interested. Students will then participate in a focusing activity such as silent sit spots to open their eyes and ears. Finally, students will work on an activity together to increase skills or knowledge, such as a scavenger hike, or attempting to build their own nest.
What to bring?
- Closed toed shoes
- Resuable Water Bottle
- Optional: Snack (A snack will be provided for all students)
This is an optional drop off program with an adult to child ratio of 1:7.
