Come join Naturalists at this FREE program to get ready for the holiday season! We will learn how to repurpose and upcycle common household items into new wrapping, just in time for the holidays. Crafts will include calendar gift bags, magazine bows, and pinecone crafts. Homemade tea will also be available to sample while you craft! The tea was sourced from the Wapsi River Center's own wild ingredients (and the recipes would make an exellent gift!)

Registration is required and limited, so please call to reserve your spot.
