FALL LEAF COLLECTION & CRAFT DAY!
LOCATION: We’ll meet at the Library on Saturday, October 10, at 10:00 AM. From there we’ll look at trees in Central Park, followed by Lakeside Park, collecting as many types as we can find. Then we’ll gather at the picnic shelters to learn how to press and preserve leaves between wax paper, using an iron. (As a bonus, I’ll also hand out packets for an at-home astronomy project).
PLEASE NOTE! During the field trip, we’ll need to practice social distancing and keep 6 feet apart, and masks will not be required when we are out walking; HOWEVER, once we get to the picnic shelters to learn about leaf-pressing, we’ll need to mask up.
MATERIALS: Irons, ironing boards, wax paper, and leaf I.D. guides will be provided. Please bring your own mask. (Feel free to bring an iron if you have one!)
Limit 12 children, ages 5 and up. Call the Library at 320-839-2494, or sign up in person. Participants MUST PRE-REGISTER BY October 1.
