On Monday, kids in the Kinder Skog Nature Program were treated to an impromptu marine animal learning experience by Jeff Meucci. The program operates in the mornings during the summer and in the afternoons during the school year. Kids ages five through nine spend their days outdoors in any type of weather, learning, exploring and playing, said Katie Holmlund, one of the founders of the program.
