Event Description: 

Spend the after-school hours playing in the woods at Goodwin Conservation Center! Join Beth Bernard, Goodwin’s Program Director, as you build a fun fort out of safe materials that we find in the forest. Can you build a waterproof fort? One that protects against wind? How many people can you fit in your fort? After we learn how to be safe in the woods, we will let our creative juices flow and embrace the fort life! Age 6-12, children must be accompanied by an adult. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and tick protection.
