School Vacation Week: Family Nature Discovery Walks

WHEN: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 1:00PM - 2:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold Gardens

Join us for an afternoon of observing and making connections to our natural world, something important for both kids and adults in our busy world. Blithewold encourages the whole family to experience the beauty and renewal of the garden—not only with their eyes, but also with their ears, fingers, toes, and nose! Participants will use an included special nature observation kit that includes a magnifying glass and observation box, to explore the world around them. Gardens Manager and tour leader Gail Read will guide us toward uncovering for ourselves the sensory delights of nature.

*The tour will begin at the Rose Garden, just behind the Visitors Center. Please wear comfortable, waterproof shoes.
Feel free to arrive early and enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds!
