We're having our Opening Weekend tomorrow, May 2, and Sunday, May 3! This weekend we're featuring "Camouflage Animals." Visitors can paint their own owls, deer, and frogs to take home, learning about forest adaptations and the hidden lives of animals. Our hours are Saturday, 10-4, and Sunday 12-4. Closed in the pouring rain, but not in light showers.
For Saturday, May 9th and Sunday, May 10th, the Center is offering "Mother's Day Beading." Visitors of all ages can make a bracelet or necklace for a Mother's Day gift--or bring your Mom along to help you choose the seed bead colors. The Lewis and Clark Exploratory staff will be available to finish up your piece and to put on the clasp--and to teach you how.
Admission is $3 per person (same price for children and adults). We're located in Darden Towe Park off Stony Point Road. (Take the 250E Bypass to Pantops, a left onto Stony Point Road, and another left onto Elks Drive after less than a mile. Curve your way into the park.) Admittance on the weekend of the "Mother's Day Beading" activity includes one necklace or bracelet per person. Extra jewelry pieces are $3 for a necklace and $2 for a bracelet.
