Programming will involve lots of hands-on activities (with rotation stations) and will focus on “resources: then and now”. They will have a couple of stations about water conservation, a station about animal populations, a station about geology, a station about the forest habitat, and a station about national parks. Please note that pre-registration is required.
Also SPRING FAMILY CAMPING is just around the corner, April 29-May 1 at Woodruff. If you have not signed up but would like to go, please email Meredith so I can add you to the list.
