With the weather getting colder day by day, a fire is a wonderful way to warm up and relax in the woods. This week we’ll be discussing fire safety and trying out various fire starting techniques, from using pine sap, to batteries and even a magnifying glass. Before we head to the woods to start a campfire, we’ll create our own fire starters to bring home!
Programs led by a CNC educator are offered every week. All children under 15 must have an adult present. We'll be using specimens from our education collection and tools for exploration, then head to the woods to put into action what we learned. We suggest wearing high socks or pants, to help with preventing ticks since this program does go out on the trails. Don't forget to register all adults in attendance.
Our fall series is focused on habitats, animals and the world around us here in Ithaca. Feel free to come to one program or come to all!
Our programs are under a "pay-what-you-can" model. All funds raised will help our education department continue their work at the Cayuga Nature Center.
Across all of these opportunities, social distancing and masks are required to comply with our current health policies.
