This program has been CANCELLED.

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 excellent gift!)

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

Once a month the Wapsi River EE Center will be hosting a day just for homeschoolers! Join us for programming led by our Naturalists!

The goal of this series is to immerse children in the natural world and help them experience seasonal phenomena in a hands-on way. Most appropriate for K-6th grades, though all ages welcome. Suggested donation of $1/student. Please come prepared for the weather because much of the planned programming will take place outdoors.

Registration opens the first of each month.
