Family Nature Tales program launched
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is launching a new series of family programs called “Family Nature Tales.” The programs will be held monthly at the Society’s Yankauer Nature Preserve in Berkeley County starting in January.
The January program will be held on Saturday, Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Intended to encourage families to explore nature together, the programs will start with a nature-themed story reading at the preserve’s pavilion, followed by a supervised outdoor nature activity in the preserve. The stories and activities will be aimed at children eight years of age and younger but everyone will be welcome.
All the programs will be free but pre-registration will be required. Register on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org. Directions to the preserve can also be found there.
The Yankauer preserve’s trails are natural surface (dirt) with hills and rocks, so rugged strollers or packs are recommended for younger children. Participants should dress for prevailing weather conditions and wear closed-toed shoes.
Programs will generally be held rain (or snow) or shine, but severe weather may force occasional cancellations.
The programs are being funded by a grant from the Nora Roberts Foundation. For more information, contact Ellen Murphy at Ellen@PotomacAudubon.org.
