Educational Programs 2016
Well The Friends of the Sanctuary had a blast this season putting on some amazing educational programs for the children and parents of SD&G this season! The interest in visits to sanctuary is growing and we sure did rise to the challenge! We had school groups coming all the way from Prescott, Spencerville to Ingleside. As well as an amazing March Break lineup which was met with great enthusiasm. Large groups came out to participate in all we had to offer! The scavenger hunt/hot dog day was a huge hit, as well as kite day and even the dog sledding was successful at drawing people in, despite the uncooperative weather.
Our volunteers also helped school children come in and learn about nature and wildlife. We had groups ranging from seven to sixty five children. We would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all of those children, teachers and parent helpers , we couldn't have done it without you! We provided a nature walk, some snowshoeing/skiing, an educational component and a craft so the children could remember their day. We received feedback that many a bus ride home was very quiet! It feels great to know that they enjoyed the day out enjoying nature and being active!
