Adirondack Museum Cabin Fever Sunday : "Children & Nature: The ABCs of Observation" Presentation
April 22, 2012
Crandall Public Library, Community Room, Glens Falls, N.Y., 1:30 p.m.
A special program for families to celebrate Earth Day 2012. "The ABCs of Observation" is an fully interactive presentation engaging individuals of all ages in rediscovering their skills as keen observers of the natural world. It's some of the most fun you'll have indoors learning about the outdoors. 1:30 pm presentation at Crandall Library followed by outdoor activities.
Presenter Paul Hai is co-founder of Children in Nature, New York and serves on the Grassroots Leadership Team of the Children & Nature Network. Paul is passionate about creating interdisciplinary programs using natural history, inquiry-based activities and outdoor experiences as the foundations for teaching the process of science, exploring the Adirondack experience, and for getting children outside. This commitment to using informal science education as a vehicle for reconnecting children to nature will form one of the key programmatic themes of NFI's new Adirondack Interpretive Center.
Free to members and children; $5 for non-members.
This event is part of our Cabin Fever Sunday programming and will take place at the Crandall Library, Glens Falls, N.Y.
