Miami-Dade County Parks has launched the new Miami EcoAdventures™ kids’ program “Read and Explore,” a collaboration with Miami-Dade Public Library System, in hopes of engaging children and families in fun, educational, outdoor experiences that enhance an appreciation for nature and the environment.
The free monthly program debuts with a reading of Eric Carle’s award-winning children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” on Monday, March 13, 2017, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m., at the Bill Sadowski Park & Nature Center, 17555 SW 79 Ave., Miami. Kids will enjoy story-themed crafts, a caterpillar and butterfly hunt and butterfly garden exploration.
Each month, the park will feature a reading of a specially selected nature-themed children’s book, courtesy of the Palmetto Bay Branch Library, as well as various arts, science and nature activities.
