Jamestown, NY – Outdoor nature play is proven to help create healthy, happy kids. And you don’t need to live in a forest to have natural places kids will love.
At the Audubon Nature Center on Saturday morning, March19, you can learn how to create natural play areas in your yard using plantings, cuttings, and on-hand materials.
From 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. you can explore new ways to look at your yard from a child’s point of view. A hedge becomes a house. Gardens become jungles. Rocks become pathways to secret worlds.
There are many ways to enhance the “playability” of a yard that no one but the children notices, as well as projects that can potentially be huge. You can learn interesting ways to create both kinds of play areas, explore the playscape at the Nature Center, and brainstorm how to use your yard in new ways.
Most of the workshop time will be inside, with a short walk outdoors to look at the Nature Center’s play area.
