Join us from 1 to 4 p.m. for fun activities like making edible dirt, fishing in the Brandywine, and helping split a stone using a feather and wedge. Activities are included in the cost of admission and free for members and children five and under.

Relive summer camp for an afternoon! Make a tornado in a bottle and upcycled can tab bracelets. Plant a seed to take home, and watch it grow. Go on a forest health scavenger hunt or relax along the Brandywine. Discover and appreciate the natural resources around us.
