Free Program: Water Wonders Spanish- Language Tour
Saturday September 26, 2009
Guided walks in Spanish at 10:30am and 3:00pm, English at 1:30pm
Location: Cradle of Forestry
In honor of the 15th annual National Public Lands Day, the Cradle of Forestry will offer family-oriented programs in both Spanish and English on September 26. All ages are invited to come enjoy the Cradle free of charge on this special day.
A Cradle Naturalist will lead a "Water Wonders" (Maravillas del Agua) walk along the wheelchair-accessible 1.3 mile paved Forest Festival Trail. The walk will highlight the historical uses of public lands, and the many ways in which our forests affect watersheds and water quality. Following the one-hour tour, children ages 5-12 are invited to participate in a short game in which they will learn about the water cycle and its importance to living things.
Admission for this event is FREE!
