Sibley Nature Center Tales and Trails

A discovery program for preschool aged children

On the second Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m., preschool children and their caregivers are invited to join Sibley Staff and Volunteers for an interactive one hour storytime in partnership with the Midland County Public Library. Discover the shapes within a flower, the colors on the back of a beetle, the music of the wind, and much more.

This program is designed for 2-4 year old children, and younger siblings are welcome. Tales and Trails is a Free Program with a suggested donation of $2. There is no need to register, just show up ready for fun!

Our next Program will be March 5th at 10 am and will be all about Trees!

Trees give us lumber, oxygen, shade, and something to climb! Trees also provide homes for lots of animals and critters. Join us for fun activities and interactive stories to learn all about how important trees are!


No registration is required*. Just show up at Sibley ready to have fun and learn!

* Recommended $2 donation

* Please keep in mind if you are part of a play group Sibley Nature Center will require you sign up for a group time. You can find more information on our play group options here!
