Suggested Ages:

Join a nature-inspired craft-making program. Children aged 2-12 and their grownups are invited to learn, create, and have fun together. With winter approaching, the focus will be on two creatures that stay active  throughout the season. The owl and squirrel are incredible survivors of the cold months.
