Nature Play Day Activities

Muncie BY5, the early childhood development initiative in Muncie/Delaware County, is planning for the second annual Nature Play Days week, scheduled for June 10 - 16, 2017 through the Indiana Child and Nature Network.

Last year Delaware County offered more than 45 separate FREE outdoor activities during one week. The number of statewide activities was right at 100, so our county made up nearly half of that number.

Muncie BY5's goal is more than 60 free activities this year. Activities can be anything from multi-day events to simple guided hikes and play meet-ups. The goal is to get kids outside and remind families that nature play is important.

Ball State faculty, staff, and students are invited to submit activities for consideration. Event registration forms must be submitted to by April 28. Questions? Marissa Rose or Carrie Bale at (765) 216-7423.
