McLEAN -- Sugar Grove Nature Center
announces two family programs at the beginning of June.
Crayfish and a
Friday, June 1, 7-9 p.m.
No, we're not going to eat them! Participants are invited to
learn about crayfish -- little, lobster-like critters. Kids of all
ages will have the opportunity to create a crayfish craft, and then
everyone (except the crayfish) will head out to the campfire for
s'mores and lemonade. This program is perfect for families.
Fee: Free for nature center members, $5 for nonmembers.
Saturday, June 2, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Bring the family out for a day of fun at the nature center. There
will be a guided hike at 11 a.m. Stop inside to create a
make-and-take craft at any time, and don't miss the feeding of the
turtles and snakes at 1 p.m.
In addition, As Good As Gold Golden Retriever Rescue (www.asgoodasgold.org)
will be on hand for a meet and greet. Learn about their organization
while visiting with pups and pooches in need of a good home.
Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it.
Fee: Free. No registration required.
