Something for everyone!

Happy students having fun at the SCA 2012 Earth Day event

Join Wilderness Awareness School on April 20th from 10am-1pm at the Washington Park Arboretum for a free, fun-filled afternoon of nature connection activities to celebrate Earth Day. Bring yourself, your buddies and the whole family for nature games that will expand your senses and enrich a deeper connection to the earth.

April story time at the Miller Library will celebrate Earth Week with stories celebrating Mother Earth and some of the ways we can help preserve our planet’s green beauty for future generations. After the stories, peer at a scoop of compost under a magnifier to see and sketch some of the life there. Saturday, 4/27, 10:30 – 11:15 am.

Celebrating evergreens with stories

 Join us Saturday, December 15 from 10:30 to 11:15 am  for stories and art.

In the Pacific Northwest, we treasure our evergreen forests, and today’s stories celebrate them. After the stories you’ll have time to color a tree picture or use homemade salt dough to sculpt your own evergreen tree. Free for kids ages 3 to 8 and their parents.
