Nature Programs

Nature Writing
Tuesday, April 13, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
How many of us can remember the first time we were enchanted by some aspect of the natural world through the pages of a book? Nature writing is a special way of sharing the wonder of the outdoors with someone who may never have a chance to experience it otherwise – or inspire someone to make the trek to see it for themselves! Join environmental educator and blogger Dr. Maria Wheeler-Dubas online for an interactive evening exploring tips, tricks, and reminders about the arts of writing and storytelling; then try your hand at creating your own written piece! Have paper, pencils, or an open Word document ready; ignore that voice of insecurity; and let your inner nature writer shine. Registration is required to receive the Zoom meeting invitation link.

Camping 101
Tuesday, April 20, 7:00 pm
If you’re interested in camping, but aren’t sure where to start, join PA Master Naturalist Kristen Haas online for Camping 101. She’ll be sharing information on where to go, what to bring, and what to do while you’re there, including activities for kids! Now is the perfect time to make your plan to enjoy the great outdoors as the weather warms up! Registration is required to receive the Zoom meeting invitation link.

Starting a Vegetable Garden from Seeds
Please note that this is a pick-up kit, not a Zoom program.
Pick up starting on Tuesday, April 20, 12:00 pm
Do you want to grow your own vegetables, but don’t know where to begin? Thanks to a donation from Lowe’s of Gibsonia, we have assorted vegetable seed packets to help you get planting!

Monday, May 10, 6:30 PM
We’ve all heard that pollinators are important, but what are they and what is so important about them? Learn all about pollinators and what you can do to help them in this Zoom program, led by Pennsylvania Master Naturalist Pam Wilson. (Registration link coming soon!)

Bird Anatomy
Tuesday, May 25, 7:00 PM
Have you ever seen a bird in flight and wondered just how that was possible? Join PA Master Naturalist Verna McGinley as she teaches us all about bird anatomy in this Zoom presentation.
