That’s right! Though it is still technically summer, autumn has arrived at the Nature Center in a big way. School is back in session, which means school groups have begun visiting us daily to learn about bees, wetlands, and why we have a stairwell located inside a former silo. (Many other things are learned as well, this is just what came to mind first.) The prairie has taken on that glorious golden color that reminds you to appreciate the snow-free ground while you can, and this recent chilly snap has some of us in the office donning cardigans and jackets. (Personally, apple cider dreams have started invading my waking hours.)
Fall is a wonderful time at the Nature Center, and this Saturday is a wonderful example of why. In the morning, we have a public preschool program called “Interesting Insects” that promises to be a fun time (and an interesting one, of course) for adult and children. Then in the afternoon, we have Monarch Tagging, where those who are curious, young and old, can learn all about this incredible butterfly, while aiding in their research by catching, tagging, and releasing them right here at the Nature Center.
Our shop is having an exciting Saturday as well, as we kick off our Creekside Shop Sale! Many products (Burt’s Bees, toys, games and more) are marked at 50% off, and a wide selection of books are 30% off (which means you’re paying what we payed for them and nothing more!).

Stop in this Saturday, we’ll be glad to see you here!
