Des Moines Parks and Recreation Environmental Education is hosting a four part after school enrichment series for kids grades K-3 at the Greenwood Park Jay Spence Shelter. Each week, participants will spend time inside learning about a nature related topic, building a project or craft and then everyone will gear up and go outside for an activity. Be prepared for the outdoor weather! If conditions are good, we will try out our skills at snowshoeing. We will end each session with a cup of hot chocolate and a light snack. The group will meet 3:45-4:45 for four weeks, Thursdays Feb. 16th March 9th and have different nature topic each week. Topics tentatively will include, Backyard Adventures, Tracks & Scat, Mammals and Squirrels. Registration is required and is $20 per child. Parents are invited to stay for the event at no fee.
