Join us for a special day at Maymont’s Farm to explore the great outdoors. Nature Cat, our favorite “backyard explorer extraordinaire” from the PBS KIDS series, will be there to help us learn all about Mother Nature.
WHEN: Saturday, July 21, 2018 • 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: Maymont Farm • 1001 Spottswood Road • Richmond, VA 23220
Maymont, Ready to Learn and Science Matters will offer hands-on activities that motivate children to observe, ask questions and investigate the natural world all around them. Children will be able to interact with some of Maymont’s Wildlife Ambassadors - live animals- and have their photo taken with Nature Cat. Come and explore with us!
About Nature Cat
The show follows Fred, a house cat who dreams of exploring the great outdoors. Once his family leaves for the day, Fred transforms into Nature Cat, “backyard explorer extraordinaire!”. Nature Cat can’t wait to get outside for a day of backyard nature excursions and bravery, but there’s one problem: he’s still a house cat with no instincts for nature! With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures full of nature investigation, “aha” discovery moments and humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and “play the show.”
Nature Cat is aimed at 3-8 year olds and devised to reconnect children with the natural world; making engaging, age-appropriate nature education a sustaining and enriching part of their daily lives. Check TV listings for air-times.
