June Schedule

Throughout the month of June we'll have our regular exhibits and activities for the season, "The Mystery of the Keelboat,"Nature Observation," and maskmaking and beading. In "Mystery of the Keelboat," visitors of all ages are invited to board the keelboat to find clues. "Nature Observation" takes families out onto the trails to locate painted animals and learn about North American species that Lewis and Clark encountered. Then they can come back to the main Center and paint their own! In addition to these activities, we'll have the following rotating programs:

June is the introduction to Carpentry Corner, a new station where children who have earned their Apprentice Boat Building badges can get more comfortable using carpentry tools. June 6 and 7, and June 13 and 14, we'll be featuring "String and Nail Art." Kids will hammer in nails of various sizes onto boards and then will string yarn of different colors on the nails to make designs. Afterwards, they'll paint their boards to take home. On June 20 and 21, and June 27 and 28, Carpentry Corner will feature "Boats and Birdhouses," and children will be taught new construction skills so they can make miniature boats and functional birdhouses. Adults are also welcome to participate in the programs and take home their own 70's inspired String and Nail Art!

We look forward to seeing you there!
