Fourth Fridays for Families: Falling for Fall with Priscilla Hayes and Joanne Zuckerman (Oct. 27)

Start
Friday, October 27 10:30 am
End
Friday, October 27 12:00 pm

Free

Kids 3 to 6 and their adult caregivers can join two naturalists for a fun-filled morning as we explore the changing of the seasons. Fall is a time when the earth regenerates itself, turning spring and summer greenery into food and seeds for the next year. We will hunt for fallen leaves, acorns and other wild samples from nature, make a crown and wand, try out leaf dancing and other activities. Please bring a snack for your child, as we will have a snack and talk period.

Priscilla Hayes has been designing and implementing hands-on environmental education programs for children since the 1990s, when she started introducing children to recycling, reuse and composting through the Robbinsville Clean Communities and Recycling program. She was the school garden educator for three Princeton schools. Hayes is turning her backyard into a meadow for bees, butterflies, birds and native plants.

Joanne Zuckerman has been a volunteer at BHWP for the past 6 years. As a psychiatric social worker, she specialized in the treatment of young children and developed programs to meet their needs. More recently, therapeutic horticulture has become another arrow in her quiver. She believes strongly that making a link with nature benefits everyone, even little folks.
