Enjoy Summer Nature Program fun from home with your very own SNP-in-a-Box! Participants will receive a box containing self-paced instruction and fun on the topics of Stream Critters, Mammals, Reptiles, Butterflies, and Summer Trees. Each topic will be explored with a short introductory video online (link comes in the box), an outdoor component like a scavenger hunt or walk, a game or activity, a craft, and recommendations for further study. All instructions and specialty materials will be included. Some projects will require basic materials found around the home, like crayons or glue. Special needs and requests can be considered on a case-by-case basis for all programming and materials. These boxes will make one of each project and are meant to be used by one child. Some included activities, like a tree scavenger hunt, will lend themselves to an entire family or group participating. A limited number of these boxes will be available, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. These boxes will be available for pick up July 1.
