Fireside Chats

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!

Space is limited to 20 participants and pre-registration is required. Click Here to register. 

Programs led by a CNC educator are offered every month. 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.
Across all of these opportunities, social distancing and masks are required to comply with our current health policies.
