PBS KIDS has just shared their special outdoor-themed Spring (April – June) line-up featuring all-new specials and episodes from fan-favorite series to help kids “grow” their knowledge about the environment while inspiring outdoor play.
The line-up of Spring specials kicks off April 17 with a week of new Nature Cat episodes, with Nature Cat, Hal, Squeeks, and Daisy exploring the natural world around them. Additionally, a new online game, Pollinator Pathways, will also launch on the official Nature Cat website. On April 21, an hour-long Earth Day special of Cyberchase premieres on the PBS KIDS Video App where viewers will meet Jackie’s family for the first time and travel to Stellandia, a planet in need of the CyberSquad’s help, followed by two new Cyberchase episodes. Young viewers can also join Alma and her family for some big-city fun with a week of new Alma’s Way episodes, debuting April 24-26. And all-new Wild Kratts episodes premiere May 22-25.
In addition to the upcoming premieres, viewers can tune in to seasonal episodes from popular series, including Arthur, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dinosaur Train, Elinor Wonders Why, and others.
