Weekly PlayScape Fun! 


Campfire and Cocoa in the Schott Nature PlayScape

Saturday, January 19, 1-3 pm

Under the watchful eye of a master fire builder and with a caregiver’s permission, children will be sent on collecting “missions” to bring back and add specific natural materials to the fire. This experience allows children to build a healthy respect for fire, learn about primitive fire-building and enjoy hot cocoa. No preregistration required. Free; nonmembers pay daily admission (but donations accepted for hot cocoa).

Maple Crafts!

Saturday, January 26, 2-3 pm

Stop in the Nature PlayScape for a cup of cider and some winter crafting fun. Our simple maple tree-inspired crafts are a perfect complement to our maple sugaring tours–check out tour times on the Nature Center calendar! No preregistration required. Free; nonmembers pay daily admission.

Frosty Experiments

Saturday, February 2, 2-3 pm

Calling all Frozen and Ice Age fans! Beat winter boredom with this icy program for all ages! We’ll play with ice and explore its unique characteristics. No preregistration required. Free; nonmembers pay daily admission.
