Winter Break Activities!

WINTER BREAK ACTIVITIES are two weeks away. Come join us at the Pember Library & Museum and the Hebron Nature Preserve for school break activities.

The week begins with an Owl Moon Walk at the Hebron Nature Preserve on Sunday, February 16th from 6:00-8:00pm. We will be meeting at the South Grimes Hill Road (in Hebron) entrance to the Preserve. There will be owl wings and talons for the touching and hoots for the listening before we begin our walk across the bridge and down the West Trail. In previous years we have had a group of as many as 20 and as few as 2. Whether a first timer or veteran, this event is a Hoot! Sometimes we hear the owls talking and sometimes we only hear ourselves. The event is free and open to anyone that is able to walk a trail in the dark. Flashlights are necessary unless we get a clear sky & full moon. We will be just coming out of a full moon that evening. Fingers crossed for a windless clear sky. Bitter cold or poor road conditions will cancel this event. I will post the day of the event.

Tuesday, February 18th from 12:00-1:00pm will be a live Chinchilla event. Come to the Museum and meet Muffin the Chinchilla and listen to a story. This is a free event for all ages!

Wednesday, February 19th from 11:30am – 1:00pm will be Slate Painting & Decoupage in the Library. Since I have only six 8×10 and six 5×9 slate pieces, we will draw names to decide who gets which size in order of fairness.There is no fee, but we’ll gladly accept donations.  Pre-registration is required as there are only 12 seats for this activity.

Thursday, February 20th from 11:30am – 1:00pm will be Butterfly Suncatchers & 3D Mobiles in the Library. There are 11 seats available for the Butterfly Suncatchers and 11 seats available for the 3D Mobiles. Participants can enroll for one or the other but not both. Pre-registration is required to reserve your child’s seat. Suncatchers will be pre-strung for the child to color and add beads. 3D Mobiles will be partially assembled to allow the child to color and decide on placement of accompanied pieces. They will also be pre-strung. There is no fee for this class, but we will accept donations.

What is Pre-registration? Please call the museum at 642-1515 and speak to Bernadette, leave a message with the museum volunteer or on the answering machine with the following information. Program, Name & Age of Child, Name & Telephone Number of Parent or Contact Person. You may also reserve seating by emailing Bernadette at Since the class sizes are limited, it is recommended that you reserve in advance. Walk-ins will be accepted if seats are open.

For questions, please do not hesitate to contact Bernadette. We are looking forward to a FUN WINTER BREAK!
