Decorate a Tree for Wildlife

(All Ages)

Saturday, December 12th 12-4 pm

It can be tough to be an animal in winter!  Show your love for nature by decorating a tree for wildlife.  Grab your family and friends to form a team for some friendly competition.  Teams will have 3 hours to create and decorate with ornaments and garlands filled with yummy treats for the birds, squirrels, deer, and other animals that choose Fenner as their winter home.  While the teams are busy at work, visitors to the Nature Center can participate in hands-on activities about animals in winter.  At 3 pm, decorating will wrap up so that visitors and judges can view the trees and vote on their favorites.  Prizes will be awarded at 3:45 pm.  Teams should register for this event by 12/5.

Cost:  FREE
