Saturday April 24

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Preregistration required. This program is designed for ages 5 and above.

Participants will meet at the PlayScape Pavilion at our Rowe Woods location. 

Make every day Earth Day! Explore the trails with your family on a quest to be the ultimate conservationist.  Journey through different habitats while completing tasks to help Mother Nature. Find your new favorite native plant, make a seed bomb, then launch it into the field, feed the wildlife at the lake, and much more! Each family team will be given a checklist of challenges to be completed around the Nature Center. You will have up to two hours to complete your journey... the timer is running! 

Important note: As this program will be meeting outdoors to ensure social distancing, it will be run as a “fair weather program.” Extreme weather like severe storms will cancel this program and a full refund will be offered.
