**We are currently taking a break from our Pre-school Science Classes due to concerns over Covid-19. Please check back for future programming.**
We offer two pre-school program options: one through the Massabesic Center in Auburn; the other is organized through the McLane Center in Concord (but takes place in Hopkinton, see below).
Nature-based preschool programs keep young children engaged through hands-on activities, songs, crafts, stories, and outdoor discovery.

Brockway Wee Explorers in Hopkinton
Join New Hampshire Audubon at Brockway Nature Preserve in Hopkinton for nature explorations with your 3 to 5 year old. This is an outdoor location with no bathroom facilities. Please dress children for the weather and be ready to walk on the trail, sit on logs and the ground, and dig in the dirt! Programs begin at the meeting circle at 10:00am and are 45 minutes. Programs will be cancelled if poor weather is predicted during the program time, participants will be notified by email.
To find the meeting circle, park in the Brockway Preserve parking area along Farrington Corners Road in Hopkinton, then follow the entrance trail across the bridge to the circle.

Founded in 1914, NH Audubon’s mission is to protect New Hampshire’s natural environment for wildlife and for people. It is an independent statewide membership organization with four nature centers throughout the state. Expert educators give programs to children, families, and adults at centers and in schools. Staff biologists and volunteers conduct bird conservation efforts such as the Peregrine Falcon restoration. NH Audubon protects thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and is a voice for sound public policy on environmental issues.
