Living in a rather large metropolis, it’s easy to forget we are surrounded by nature every day—the intersection between people and wildlife is often overlooked. That’s why The Nat is building The Backyard, a new play space for young, curious minds up to the kindergarten age. This new exhibit will allow little learners to expand their horizons by exploring the natural world through play.
Vibrant decor and rich experiences inspired by a quintessential San Diego backyard make The Backyard an inviting space where children five and under can develop essential process skills. Whether animals, minerals, or vegetables captivate your child, they are sure to find an exhibit element that piques their interest and curiosity.
