Join the Sonoma Ecology Center Earthlings for FREE spring break in the oak woodland and garden settings. This camp is being fully funded by the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation at no cost to families! Together, ages 6-12 will grow as junior naturalists and agriculturists. Let’s play games, plant crops, draw and journal nature observations, conduct experiments, and craft artwork and culinary concoctions. This week will provide much-needed time to immerse in the local habitat while enjoying friends. The first day we tour the 6-acre farm and straw bale barn, then play in the dirt- studying soil and building compost; day 2 is focussed on pollinators, from a hedgerow game to the bee and butterfly garden hunts; day 3 we branch out into the oak woodlands to observe birds and wildlife and create crafts; day 4 is centered around resources and caring for the planet, enjoying culinary delights, harvesting, preparing and creating new recipes. Day 5 will be held at VanHoosier Wildflower Preserve for a hike and special Earth Day activities. Each camper will finish the week with a memory book of their environmental experiences.

Únete a los Earthlings del Centro Ecológico de Sonoma para las vacaciones de primavera en el bosque de robles y los jardines. Juntos, de 6 a 12 años, crecerán como jóvenes naturalistas y agricultores. Jugaremos, plantaremos cultivos, dibujaremos y registraremos observaciones de la naturaleza, realizaremos experimentos y elaboraremos obras de arte y brebajes culinarios. Esta semana les brindará el tiempo tan necesario para sumergirse en el hábitat local mientras disfrutan de sus amigos. El primer día recorremos la granja de 6 acres y el granero de fardos de paja, luego jugaremos en la tierra estudiando el suelo y construyendo abono; el día 2 se centra en los polinizadores, desde un juego de setos hasta la caza de abejas y mariposas en el jardín; el día 3 nos adentramos en los bosques de robles para observar aves y vida silvestre y crear artesanías; el día 4 se centra en los recursos y el cuidado del planeta, disfrutando de delicias culinarias, cosechando, preparando y creando nuevas recetas. El día 5 se llevará a cabo en Van Hoosier Wildflower Preserve para una caminata y actividades especiales del Día de la Tierra. Cada campista terminará la semana con un libro de recuerdos de sus experiencias ambientales.
