August 2009 Learnscape Grand Opening
Nearby Nature's Learnscape Grand Opening was a huge success! The weather was lovely, the music was wonderful, the treats were tasty and the activities were fun. Thanks to all the folks who helped make the day happen! Click here for a list of the volunteers and donors for this event.
Here's what a few folks had to say about the new Learnsacpe:
I love the community building, the wonderful beautiful spirit, the creation, the learning, the sharing, everything. -- Mariamma Jones
Wonderful! A lively, lovely afternoon; my girls want to build a chicken coop and watershed table now. Thanks, Nearby Nature! -- Louis Noset
Nearby Nature is an amazing concept and space. There are opportunities to learn about gardening for children which encourages creative and healthy development. There are opportunities for people of all ages, also. It's amazing how much was accomplished in one year. From dead grass to beautiful gardens with interesting nooks for play and vegetable gardens and art and native plant growing areas. There should be more projects like this in existence! -- Stephanie Hatten
We got some fun ideas to do in our own garden/ yard/ house. Love the solar pizza box oven! Fun for the whole family!
Cozy circular shaped areas for kids to gather and express their unique kid selves - ring of beans, ring of sunflowers, turtle sandbox - AWESOME.
