Now that it’s officially the summer, there’s an opportunity to get your younger children outdoors and into nature.

The Lake Superior Esturarine Research Reserve in Superior is hosting what they call the River Rovers Nature Playgroup.

It’s a group of children ages 3-7, with their parents in tow, having nature-themed adventures at Billings Park.

The goal is to help kids connect to the place they live and show them just how special it is to live near Lake Superior and the St. Louis River.

Since the children are younger, organizers say their lessons and activities are more hands-on.

“We really try to give the kids a lot of tactile experiences, a lot of sensory experience, and a really safe, cozy environment to have fun in,” said Education Coordinator Deanna Erickson.

The River Rovers will meet every Thursday morning through the summer at Billings Park in Superior.

It’s free, and there’s no need to sign up beforehand.
