The Parks are Free for Exploring

There are many state and local parks accessible - even within walking distance that you might not even know about. Sitting down with your children to explore your own local maps and destinations is a wonderful opportunity to talk about how our land is preserved and the wonderful ways you can engage with it.

Simple ideas like

Yes I did get the packet and thanks so much!  Can't wait to implement it- but I have to wait to see how many kids sign up for Nature Nuts, if any.  We have to have 5, but no more than 10.  We will have a 4-week (1 class/week) session on Trees, and then a 3-weel session on Pond Life.  Summer is a possibility too, as we are open all summer for working parents.  We'll see how it goes this spring.  What does a Chipper Ambassador do?

Hi Stephanie! Welcome! It's great to see you here. I look forward to lots of good things for Chipper and the whole Children and Nature Movement in 2011.
