Junior Naturalist Program (Idyllwild)

The following is LAST YEAR’S event.   They haven’t posted the 2012 schedule, yet.  I like to plan out as much of my whole summer as I can so I am posting this for a reference.   If you are interested in this program, the first thing to know is it is only held on Saturdays.   I will be checking back each week for updates.
