 Irvine Nature Center BugWe have teamed up with (cool) progeny parenting blog and the Irvine Nature Center for a Family Play Day at the Irvine Nature Center on Saturday September 17th. It's an exclusive viewing of the Nature Center's brand new outdoor learning classroom complete with fun activities.

Irvine Nature Center Plants

The Irvine Nature Center is an environmental education organization whose mission is to educate and inspire current and future generations to explore, respect and protect nature.

Irvine Nature Center Animal Tracks

Children learn to love nature while being outdoors and interacting with the center's knowledgable staff and engaging exhibitions.

We will be providing an eco-friendly craft called makedo. It  is a connector system that enables materials including cardboard, plastic and fabric to easily join together to form new objects or structures.

makedo provides you with the reusable tools to take things you’d usually throw away, and turn them into brilliant works of fun and functional art. Participants will work together to recreate plants and animals we find in nature from recycled materials.
