Kids! Don’t miss our last Jr. Earth Keeper Club meeting on October 11th from 1 – 3pm. The Jr Earth Keepers club attracted over 60 new members over the past year.
Jr Earth Keepers Club
Our final Jr. Earth Keeper club meeting will be October 11th from 1 – 3pm. This past year’s Jr. Earth Keepers club engaged 65 children in some outdoor fun at the Nature Center. The monthly nature-based kid’s club combined environmental education with technology and games, encouraging children to get outdoors, explore and learn. Children 4 – 12-years-old were offered regular incentives for participating in the club. In addition to getting children outdoors and away from sedentary activities, the club encouraged children to use fun, new technologies in helping them discover an appreciation for the natural world, and becoming nature ambassadors in their schools and communities. Kids have one last opportunity to join the club and must pre-register by calling the Nature Center at (315) 705-5022, or email email@example.com. Participants should meet at the trail head at the Nature Center, and dress for weather (younger children must be accompanied by an adult). For a full list of events at the Nature Center, check out our calendar of events at www.massenanaturecenter.org, or friend us on Facebook: Jr Earth Keepers or Friends of the Robert Moses State Park Nature Center. The “Earth Keepers” grant program was funded by the Alcoa Foundation.
