Family Nature Tales set for May 30
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s “Family Nature Tales” program will be held at the Yankauer Nature Preserve in Berkeley County on Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
The Society’s Family Nature Tales are a new series of programs intended to encourage families to explore nature together. Each program starts 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 are aimed at children 8 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.
