Get outdoorsy in Beacon Hill
City kids need a dose of nature every so often. That's the idea behind Backyard Explorers, a new class for toddlers launching at Hill House this spring. Led by an instructor from Westwood's Hale Reservation, the one-hour sessions will educate tots (and their caregivers) on subjects like animal habitats and the creatures in Boston’s Frog Pond. Each class begins with story time, followed by an adventure walk to nearby landmarks like the Public Garden and the Esplanade.
The program is geared toward toddlers ages 2 to 5; enrollment has just opened, but hurry—the ten-week class ($300, beginning March 19) is limited to ten kids.
