“We will explore the park on a winter nature treasure hunt, looking for things like squirrels’ nests, birds, moss, berries and animal tracks,” said Pam Rowland, Institute education director and program instructor.

Children will also listen to a nature Christmas story, play games, and help decorate a tree with natural ornaments like acorns, milkweed pods and coneflower seed heads, some of which are edible for wildlife.
