Description

Join the Sonoma Ecology Center Earthlings for our low-cost spring break in the oak woodland and garden settings on March 13-17 or April 10-14 (Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-3:00 pm). Together, ages 7-11 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.

On the first day, we will tour the 6-acre farm and straw bale barn, play in the dirt, and on the new children's nature play area (!) while studying soil and building compost. Day 2 is focussed on pollinators, from a hedgerow game to the bee and butterfly garden hunts. On Day 3, we will 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 open for free play, recaps of the week, and debriefs on the experience.

Please note that this event will not have Spanish-English bilingual support. Please share this event!
