Little Explorer Nature Program held first Thursday of the month at Broemmelsiek Park     

Bring your adventurous tots to Broemmelsiek Park near Defiance for the next Little Explorer Nature Program! Children ages five and under will love discovering nature and the outdoors from 10-11 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 1, as they learn and play in the park. 

Dress for the weather – we’re going to take a short hike, play fun activities, read a story, and enjoy a snack. This program focuses on a different theme each month. Topics include birds, dinosaurs, reptiles, insects and more! 

Mark your calendar and join us for additional programs on March 1, April 5, May 3, Sept. 6, Oct. 4, Nov. 1 and Dec. 6. Each session is limited to 24 children and pre-registration is required. 

Broemmelsiek Park is located at 1795 Highway DD in Defiance. Cost is $3 for each monthly program; children must be accompanied by an adult. Call the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at 636-561-4964 or pre-register online at
