Flint Knap-In
Nov 25 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

A knap-in is a gathering of craftsmen who chip (knap) flint to replicate arrow heads, spear points, knives and other implements that sustained, fed and clothed native people for thousands of years. Some of the best knappers will be here to demonstrate how ancient-made tools and knapping have become a beautiful and collectible modern art form. Visitors are welcome to watch or try a hand at knapping. Finished items available for purchase.

Wilderness Sprouts: Twinkle Time Star Adventures
Nov 28 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Imagine you are traveling to a faraway star. You get to name your star and see how bright it shines. We’ll study the constellations and toss a star into our make-believe night sky.

Wilderness Sprouts is a monthly program designed for children ages 3-5 and their adult. Each month will feature a different topic and include a lesson and experiment, a craft, and an outdoor adventure (weather permitting.) Adults will be given activities to continue the learning experience at home.

Free for members; donation requested for non-members.

The Wilderness Center Astronomy Club members invite you to a star watch where, if it is clear, you can observe celestial objects through different types of telescopes and learn interesting facts about the those objects.

Holiday Candy Mold-Making
Dec 2 @ 10:30 am – 2:00 pm

First, we will make silicone molds of natural holiday items (pinecones, holly leaves, or whatever you bring from home). Then we’ll enjoy a lovely lunch while the silicone cures. Last, but certainly not least, we will pour chocolate into our newly-made molds and have a “natural” snack to take home. The food safe molds can then be reused at home to create sweets to give as hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or just to have on hand for holiday gatherings.

Cost: $35 includes supplies and lunch. Limited to 10 people.
