The Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation is dedicated to the protection and harmonious use of the Fells; promoting awareness, policies and programs to honor and preserve the ecological, historical and recreational resources of this urban forest reservation.
Forest Kindergarten has a new pilot program starting Oct 18 for children ages 4-10 that provides nature-based learning opportunities for children to engage in a self-guided exploration of the forest, helping develop their curiosity, critical thinking, and sense of connection with nature. The program will provide once-a-week nature-based learning opportunities through November 21, 2016. Forest Kindergarten (ages 4-5) will be offered morning or mid-afternoon on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the historic Department of Conservation and Recreation (“DCR”) Botume House at 4 Woodland Road in Stoneham. Additional forest instruction will be offered for older forest learners (ages 6-10) both after-school on Wednesdays at the Botume House and on Saturday mornings at the DCR’s Straw Point location at Spot Pond on the corner of South Street and Route 28 in Stoneham.
The Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions to The Friends are tax-deductible.
