Free Guided Nature Walks for Children
Continuing on my mission to save us all some dough while helping our children learn about the world and have a great time, I wanted to share another free program with you. While this too is in the Portland area, I encourage you to check out similar locations in your neck of the woods for like minded activities!
Tryon Creek State Park has a program called Story & Stroll geared for children ages 3-6, but all ages are welcome (with parent accompaniment) on Fridays from 1-2pm. A park naturalist hosts nature story time, along with a brief stroll through the park. Each Friday has a different theme- today's topic is Douglas Firs.
For kids ages 6-12, join the Jr. Ranger Program and learn all about how to protect natural resources, animals and plants. This is also a free program!
And February 14th from 1-4, the park is having a Happy 150th Birthday party for Oregon! Another fun, free event for the whole family.
So bundle up and get out there and enjoy some free earth loving and tree hugging!
