Playing Out with the Elements: Fire-making
Sunday, Oct. 21, 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
There is something primitive in how humans are drawn to the elements: We are mystified by lightening, rainbows, waterfalls, and the leaves as they swirl in an autumn whirlwind. For children especially, the elements are magnets, drawing them in to experience, imagine and manipulate. In this session, we will talk about fire and learn how to build a fire from scratch using primitive methods. Please register at least four days in advance.
Ages: 8-12 years
Course Fee: $3
Registration Barcode: #226756

Family Nature Night: Nocturnal Animals
Saturday, Oct. 27, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Just as you are getting sleepy and letting go of a yawn, many of the wetland’s inhabitants are stretching and getting ready for their “day.” We’ll learn which animals in the wetland are active at night, check out what our trail camera has been “catching” after dark, and go on a night walk on the greenway. Please register at least 4 days in advance.
Ages: This is a family program
Course Fee: $3
Registration Barcode: #226782
