The Night Tree - Saturday, December 7th, 2013
A holiday tradition for children, our Night Tree event is inspired by Eve Bunting's book The Night Tree. Her story is about a family that feeds the forest animals by making decorations for a special tree. Each hour during the day, we read her story together, and then decorate pinecones with birdseed and string popcorn, dried fruit and cranberries. We take a short hike on the trails to leave these tasty treats in our woods for the animals. This event costs $5 per child. Online registration will be available shortly.
