While Imagination Grove, a nature play area, is open daily, the
nature center has designated this special day for families to meet
others who enjoy and appreciate nature-based play. Participants are
invited to bring a nature item from home to trade at the Nature
Trading Post -- shells, nuts, rocks or anything else they would like
The nature center will supply lemonade and snacks;
participants bring energy and imagination.
The event is free, although a donation such as birdseed, sugar
(for hummingbirds) or paper towels would be appreciated. No
registration is required.
Another Imagination Grove Fun Day has been scheduled for Aug. 10
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
