Napinar: Adopt a Tree

Friday, January 29, 2021 - 1:30pm - Saturday, January 30, 2021 - 1:45pm
Event Type: 
All are welcome
Event Description: 

While your young child is napping, join our napinar to learn a fun nature-based family activity. When your child wakes up, it’s time for outdoor fun!

Give your kids or students control over this activity, where they get to choose their own tree to adopt in your yard or in a public park or forest. This encourages kids to investigate the differences in trees, from their bark to their leaves/needles and their seeds. They’ll enjoy making the decisions on their own, with your guided questions on how they think each tree is unique or special. This is also a wonderful long-term activity where your kids can see how their adopted tree changes throughout the year.

Materials needed: none
