Activities at Howard Christensen Nature Center

Outdoor Survival Workshop for Families

July 7, 6:00-8:00 p.m. Learn what children should do if they are lost in the woods and how to NOT get lost. Activities are hands-on and will include hiking with interpretive instructor Nova Blackburn. Please contact HCNC to reserve your spot. Cost: $5 per family.

Nature Discovery Hour

July 15, 10:00-11:00 a.m. Introducing: Nature Discovery Hour (ages 2-6). This special “discovery hour” will provide a chance for our youngest naturalists to explore the Red Pine Center, visit “nature stations” indoors and hear a story. Afterwards, families are encouraged to take a hike and bring a sack lunch to eat on the trails or back in the interpretive center. This event is free! Please contact HCNC by phone or e-mail, so we know how many children to expect (child’s name, age, and phone number or e-mail address).

Wild Wednesday Day Camps:

Forests: July 21, 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Fields: August 18, 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Young naturalists, ages 5-12, will “read the land” and learn about wildlife, plants and conservation topics in a hands-on manner. A different habitat will be featured each month, but all habitats will be explored. Activities include hiking, games, crafts and sharing time. Cost: $20 each camp/$15 for members. Registration due one week in advance.
