Junior Naturalist: Insect Safari

Saturday, June 15, 2024

Bring your curiosity and engage all of your senses while exploring natural habitats at your county parks! Led by Charleston County Park's Education staff, the multi-seasonal Junior Naturalist program series offers a wide variety of fun and educational nature-based activities focused around a central theme. Children who attend 8 classes earn the title of a Certified Junior Naturalist! Did you know there are more than a million species of insects? Become familiar with some interesting local insects by collecting, observing, and then releasing them. You may even discover that "creepy crawlies" aren't bad at all!

Ages 8-12. One chaperone per registered child required to attend but not required to register. Chaperones are not required to accompany child during program but must stay in the park for the duration of the program. Non-registered children may not attend this program. Attend at least eight programs within a school year to become a certified Junior Naturalist.

What to expect: Accessible parking is available and accessible restrooms and accessible water fountains are available near the Dunes House where the program begins and ends. An accessible route to a natural sand beach is present and beach wheelchairs are available for checkout on a first come, first served basis. The program route is out and back along a sandy beach where no benches are available. The program will require periods of walking and standing.
