St. Charles County, Missouri – Children ages 5 and under will love becoming little explorers as they learn and play in the park! Bring your adventurous tots to Broemmelsiek Park near Defiance, from 10–11 a.m., Thursday, March 7, April 4, May 2, Oct. 3, Nov. 7, and Dec. 5, for St. Charles County Park’s Little Explorer Nature Program.

This popular parent-child program focuses on a different theme each month. Preschoolers explore all things outdoors: birds, reptiles, insects, plants, animals, seeds, pollinators, dinosaurs, and more! Dress for the weather – we’re going to take a short hike, play fun activities, read a story, and enjoy a snack together.

Broemmelsiek Park is located at 1795 Highway DD near Defiance and participants should meet at the park’s visitors center. Cost is $3 for each monthly program; each session is limited to 24 children. Pre-registration is required by calling the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at 636-949-7535 or by signing up online at http://bit.ly/2019ParkRegistration for one or all the programs.
