Latest Activity: Jul 24, 2012
Learn some new skills with the the Friends of Tryon Creek as we focus on forest investigation techniques for our second Muddy Boots event of 2012. We'll have experienced guides stationed on our trails (near the Visitor's Center) waiting to engage parents and children in fun and interactive investigation techniques. Activities will be designed so they simultaneously engage parents and children while the techniques themselves will be designed for usefulness in a variety of outdoor environments. Bracelets will be available at the Visitor's Center and families that collect all the bracelet beads (one from each activity station) will be given a prize to assist with future forest investigations.
This is a free event and pre-registration is appreciated.
Registration options: Guided hikes through the stations at 10, 10:20, 10:40 and 11. Stations will be self-guided from 11:30 onward (pre-registration is still appreciated).
