Playscape Playdate: Get Your Game On!

What if you only had rocks, sticks, pine cones and trees to use as toys? Could you play games and challenge your friends or siblings? Come find ways to reinvent old games or invent your own new ones.

Education Specialist Terri Brest will add fun activities and extra imagination during your Playscape visit. Join her any time during the play date to participate in the activities! In the event of inclement weather, an alternative indoor activity will be available.

Wilderness Sprouts: Wonderful Wildlife
Sep 28 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Let’s learn about the difference between tame and wild animals from tiny bugs to furry deer. We’ll use our imaginations to act like wild critters. The trails hide clues to many wild animals, so we’ll go searching for clues on a short hike.

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.
