I have to confess, I have never taken my daughter to Ijams. I really regret that. I’ve been, and I’ve really enjoyed it. We wanted to go to a special on bats last fall, but something else came up and we didn’t go. With all these beautiful days, check out Ijams Nature Center. It is easy to find, and right in the middle of town. They have special programs for Wee Ones, ages 2-3, and Jr. Naturalists, ages 9-14. Check out their site for more information at www.ijams.org. Family membership is $50/year, or you can pay per event. While your are there, check out the beautiful homes in the Island Homes neighborhood.
