COVINGTON TWP. — The Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center invites children ages 3 to 6 years old and their parents or guardians to attend Early Explorers, a program aimed at providing children with a lifelong, meaningful relationship with the natural world. Classes will be held from 1 to 2:30 p.m. every other Monday through Nov. 26 at the Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center (LCEEC), 93 MacKenzie Road..

Early Explorers is a unique program that offers discovery-based learning that changes with each season. Using the natural world as a catalyst for growth and development, children will explore natural sciences, gain sensory awareness, creatively express themselves, and practice using large and fine motor skills while developing critical social skills.

During each class, children will have the opportunity to hike and explore the various habitats on the 211-acre property, which includes a forest, meadow, open field and a stream. Children will also gain first-hand experiences with plants and animals. Each week will feature a different nature-related topic, including apples, trees, nuts, bats, camouflage, and snow.
