Making a Difference

Here’s a big shout-out THANK YOU to the following who volunteered their time on Saturday, October 1st helping Bernie clear trails at the Hebron Nature Preserve: Board Treasurer Bob Tatko with his huge tractor mower, Board member Murray McHugh with his chainsaw & various loppers, Steve Duell, the Aubrey family (Nate, Amy, Jacob, Josiah, Aaron & Jeremiah), the Lester’s (Stephen & Rene) and Skye MacLeod. The weather was overcast and cool but the trails are now clear. They will get another cutting this coming week. We sincerely thank these wonderful people for donating their time. A little time making a significant difference.

Desert Animals & Tide Pools

On July 15 our last summer break classes were about Desert Animals and Tide Pools. The participants created a mandela sand art and a wind chime out of a star fish and sea urchin spines. The string for the wind chimes was not the easiest to knot, so adults had to assist. There are no photos of the chimes because I was peeling hot glue from my fingers. Sorry.

Insects & Nature Mozaics

July 14 was all about Insects and the second program was nature-themed mozaics.

Forests & Reptiles

July 13, our summer break programs were about forests, pinecones, and reptiles. We created a tree disc, planted a real pine tree to take home and painted a reptile.

Leaf & Flower Press

July 12 was leaf/flower presses along with individualizing a water bottle holder.

Peacock & Hedgehogs

Our first Summer break programs (Eggs & Feathers & Armored Animals ) on July 11 was well received by those attending. Here are some photos.
