  • Calling all nature explorers! Join us on a journey this Nature Friday where we will be taking part in an indoor scavenger hunt, followed by an outdoor adventure! In the afternoon, we will step outside and explore the Sheep River Valley, collecting treasures like rocks, leaves, and unique plants. Then, grab a magnifying glass to inspect your finds up close and let your creativity flow as you draw the intricate details you discover!
