Night tree event

A holiday tradition for children, our Night Tree event is inspired by Eve Bunting’s book Night Tree. Her story is about a family that feeds the forest animals by making decorations for a special tree. Each hour during the day, we read her story together, and then decorate pinecones with birdseed and string popcorn, dried fruit and cranberries. We take a short hike on the trails to leave these tasty treats in our woods for the animals.

Saturday, December 2, 2017
We begin our programs every hour beginning at 9 AM, with our last program at 2 PM.
This event costs $5 per person ages 2 and older (free for members of Wolfe’s Neck Center)

Please note this programming is not ideal for older siblings.
