Two-year-old Daniel Grammattei looks at a giant bufo toad during Saturday's event at Maitland Farm Preschool.
The Maitland Farm Preschool opened its doors and barns to nearly 500 parents and children for the first Maitland Farm Nature Expo. Live farm animals, gardens and wildlife kept the children's imagination going while education exhibits by Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, the Treasure Coast Herpetological Society, Environmental Learning Center, Pelican Island Audubon Society and the University of Florida Indian River County Master Gardeners program provided information to parents and children alike.
