Toddler Park Programs - What is a lake, dam, and float or sink experiments.

This is a toddler-friendly program. The September program will involve a Ranger talk about what a lake is, a dam, and then we'll head outside to build a dam and lake. We'll also take the opportunity to learn what items float and which sink.

Guardian or parent involvement is necessary. These programs are appropriate for very young toddlers through kinder-aged children. 

To REGISTER or get more information contact Ranger Amy: 409-698-6636 or amy.kocurek@tpwd.texas.gov

When: The first Thursday of the month at 10 AM. The programs will last from 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.

Where: As of now we're planning on meeting at the Education Center/Nature Center on the Walnut Ridge Unit, but based on park closures this may change. We may head out to a different location in the park, but we'll meet each time in front of the nature center.

What to know: We'll be outside for a portion, if not all of this program so bring bug spray, sun protection, water, gardening gloves for your toddler and you (to use when exploring), a blanket or a towel to sit on, and snacks as needed.

Cost: The program is free, but if you plan on staying in the park after the program then you must obtain a park entry permit. Entrance fees are paid at Park Headquarters, self-pay stations, or online. Fees are $4 per person over the age of 13, children 12 and under are free. Bring your Texas state park pass to waive entry fees.
