No School Nature Days
Ages 5 – 12 October – April, 2019 Skyliner Lodge
Join us at nature school where learning and fun are one! Parent teacher conferences, Thanksgiving Break, Veterans Day, and other holidays elicit days off from school. We invite you to join us for one of our exciting themes! The dates below correspond to school days off as shown on the Bend/Lapine School Disctrict schedule.
Friday, April 12th, 2019 “Hobbit and Faerie Hunters”
Ages 5 – 10 Skyliner Lodge
During our day of Wildheart Hobbit & Faerie Hunters, we will be doing just that! Kids will ‘hunt’ for perfect hobbit & faerie habitat, and create houses out of plants and natural materials for them to visit and enjoy. As participants unleash their creativity, they will learn the types of plants each magical creature prefers, based on the plant’s medicinal, or lack thereof, value. We will also discover what animals are friends with our hobbits & faeries based on what habitat they share. One important aspect of making faerie houses is choosing where to build. For this, we will wind our way through the trees and around the riverside stones in search of locations that will be the most likely to attract magical creatures. Throughout the day, we will practice hearing the language of birds, which all fantasy creatures know, so that we can decipher the messages of the winged ones. Join us for song, play, art, creativity and fun!
