No Fiddling Around!

Fiddleheads Forest School

Kit Harrington reads a book about emotions during story time.

In case you missed the fun news a couple weeks ago, the UW Botanic Gardens recently welcomed the inaugural class of the Fiddleheads Forest School!

The Fiddleheads program is designed to immerse preschool-aged children in the natural world and develop deeper connections to their environment. Using the outdoors classroom of the Washington Park Arboretum, UWBG’s Sarah Heller and Kit Harrington are focusing on the complete development of their students—mental, emotional, physical and social. They’re now a couple weeks into the program with their first of 24 families, and we can’t wait to see these young nature lovers grow up to be SEFS students down the road!

Check out the full story from Patrick Mulligan, continuing education coordinator at the Arboretum!
