Become a Junior Naturalist
The Junior Naturalist guide books gives children the opportunity to test their environmental knowledge while teaching them more about Tenafly Nature Center.
How It Works

The Guide Book
There are four guide books available throughout the year, one for each season.
Designed for children four to twelve years of age the colorful activity guide book of the Junior Naturalist Program contains helpful hints to make the completion of the guide book a family affair. There are also tips throughout the guide book to help parents have a safe and memorable visit with things to learn for all ages.
The last activity, to be done by all children, regardless of their age, is a question and answer activity. This inquiry based activity allows the children- and adults!- to think back on their visit and obtain answers to any questions they had about the things they experienced or learned about.
