Why Go: Count on us for inspiration and fun for the little ones every Satuday morning. The first and third Saturdays are all about exploring nature: we'll study different objects from nature and take a walk in the woods. The second and fourth Satudays feature read-aloud storytime and old-fashioned games.
Why Go: Professor Lauren Howard of Arcadia University teaches you to decipher land use history through the careful examination of trees and landforms. Learn to spot fence rows, tip-up mounda, tree age discontinuities, fire scars and other clues. Workshop begins with a slide presentation then moves outside to our woods for real-world practice. You'll never look at a forest the same way again!
