In October Crow's Nest will have a full schedule of kids programs at the preserve: this fall the theme is "It's OAK-a! Let's Go!" about oak trees and the species interactions that involve them. The six-week sessions begin the week of October 11.
On Wednesdays we will have after-school WebWanderers (formerly called Spiderlings) from 4 – 5:30 pm, October 13 through November 17. This program is for 2nd and 3rd graders.
Thursday mornings we host WebWalkers for homeschooled kids (ages 9 to 11 as of 9/1/10). These programs run 10 am – 12:30 pm from October 14 through November 18. After school on the same days we hold WebWalkers for kids in grades 4, 5, and 6, from 3:30 – 6 pm.
On Fridays we have WebWigglers programs, again for homeschooled kids (ages 5 – 8 on 9/1/10) in the mornings and after school programs for kids in kindergarten and 1st grade. These programs run 10 – 11:30 am and 4 – 5:30 pm.
These programs have nothing to do with the internet: they are about the web of life and interconnectedness of the plants, animals and fungi found in nature at Crow's Nest Preserve. At each session we will go for a hike, play games, observe nature, have some free time in the woods, or do a craft.
These Natural Lands Trust programs cost $30/child for the six-week session. Please register by October 5th. Call us at 610-286-7955 for more information.
