It’s Time for ECO Kids Discovery Day

Play#2The first Saturday of the month is upon us.  Do you know what that means?  That’s right.  Time for ECO Kids Discovery Day.  Each ECO Kids Discovery Day includes:

  • Hands-on Discovery Stations, led by volunteer naturalists, at the Visitor Center from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • On Your Own Challenge, a self-guided adventure, available at the Visitor Center from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Hike of the Day, led by a Bernheim guide, starts at the Visitor Center at 2:00 p.m. and runs 45-60 minutes

And what a fun day we have planned for the first day of March.  It’s all about the Cool Conifers.  Those special cone-bearing trees with needle and scale-like leaves can be found throughout the arboretum.  Kids and their families will have fun locating these trees and then exploring Discovery Stations and the Hike of the Day during the afternoon.

The forecast looks great, so come and join us!
