Lace up those hiking boots and join us as we explore Umstead with Ranger Billy.
Monthly activities will be on the third Thursday of the month and include;
- Citizen Science Projects
- Guided Hikes
- Nature classes covering a large variety of subjects suited for all ages.
I am still arranging final details with the Rangers and will post each topic we’ll cover throughout the year soon. Right now the plan is to do three groups 5-7yo, 8-11yo, and 12-up. We’re trying to set up all the classes on the same day at the same time. They may end up back to back. If you have children in multiple age groups, like I do, we will work out watching each others munchkins.
The Rangers are doing this all for us at no charge. It would be wonderful if every family could do a $1 donation to the park for every class. If you are not aware Umstead and Crabtree are fighting commercial expansion and are desperately needing the support of the community to hold on to these two gems right in the heart of our city.
