Share Nature with your Children!
Consider checking out one of our kid-friendly backpacks, featuring many items, activities, and ideas to help you explore Fernwood. Learn about birds, the gardens, or try one just for preschoolers. Backpacks may be checked out at the Front Desk. These backpacks were made possible by a grant from the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph County.
