Connecting with nature has various health benefits that can support the mind, body, and soul. Baltimore's Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young has introduced the Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights, which advocates for the fundamental rights all children are born with!

 This newsletter will connect you with events in the Park, volunteer opportunities, seasonal changes, and much more.

Can you think of ways you can step away from technology and step into nature?

Wild Haven Forest Preschool
Time to get schooled! Wild Haven provides early learning experiences that support healthy, holistic development. Our child centered approach provides ample time and space for open-ended play, investigation, and creative expressions. Seasonal cycles and natural rhythms are the foundation for nature-based education. As children explore, they develop crucial social, emotional, intellectual, and physical skills. Wild Haven Forest Preschool offers a half day option either Monday/Wednesday/Friday and/or Tuesday/Thursday.
