We feel lucky that we were still able to put our snowshoes to work this past week at our two environmental education programs, Brave Bears and Wild Walkers, that we held to coincide with local schools' winter breaks.
We welcomed an excited group of naturalists ages 6-9 on Tuesday for our Brave Bears program. Our campers started the day with an environmental education lesson that detailed how animals survive in the winter and included the clues that we can look for in our search for our furry friends during this cold season. The campers then enjoyed time exploring and playing outside. They all had a great time playing "Red Light, Green Light" on snowshoes. While hiking our Fairy Trail, we found fox, coyote, squirrel and deer tracks. We ended our day by listening to author Charles Norris-Brown read his story "Did Tiger Take the Rain" about drought in Nepal. Thank you Charles for sharing your work with our group!
