November 16th @ Lost Lake Park – 9 AM – 11:30 AM
This program, themed “Habitats and Interactions,” will take place at Lost Lake Park, located at 16385 N. Friant Rd. Admission to the park is included in the program fee; directions on how to check in once on site are provided in an automatic confirmation e-mail sent when registration is completed. Tentative program overview:
- Sensory Nature Walk: use different senses on a hike on the Lost Lake nature trail, work with partners to play short observational games along the way, and learn about historic Native American uses of Central Valley lands.
- Fairy Houses: create your own small imaginary creature and identify its habitat needs, then use natural materials to build a “fairy house” or small shelter/habitat for that creature.
- Arrowhead Necklace: “hunt” for arrowheads (replicas provided by the River Parkway Trust) and use the found “artifact” and wooden beads to create a necklace keepsake to take home.
- Snack time: a short break with snacks (provided by us) will be incorporated into the program at some point during the trip.
This adventure requires your child to be between the ages of 6 and 9 to participate. Please note that there is a $15.00 fee per child (includes park entrance fee) and advanced registration with online payment is required for participation (please only select the number of CHILD participants when registering).
