YOURS TO EXPLORE!
Fun in the Field
Throughout the next few weeks, we will be providing daily resources to encourage families to get outside during these stressful times and to keep the kids minds engaged during school closures. These fun and educational activities are designed to be completed in a local park or even your own backyard.

Will you be our nature pen pals?!
Parents, families, kids - while you are home, send James and Emily your hand written letters (we like drawings too) with a question or thought you have about nature. How many toes does a salamander have? Why are otters so adorable? Any questions you can think of. And we will write you a hand written letter back answering your nature questions or responding to your thoughts. Send your letters to:

Come explore the new GRNA Storybook Trail! We've posted the pages of the award-winning children's book "Crickwing" by Janell Cannon along the Fern Trail boardwalk. Starting at trail post 12, head toward trail post 13 to find out what happens to this artistic cockroach when he messes with the leafcutter ants! We'll be changing up the story every few weeks so you can discover a new favorite book all summer long.
