Get Wild! Winter Solstice @ Horton Grove Nature Preserve
Dec 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

gw-winter-solstice-2

Celebrate the shortest days of the year by learning how Piedmont critters adapt to these long and cold nights.  We’ll discover signs of winter on a short nature walk, make paper lanterns to light up the night, and roast s’mores around the campfire while the sun starts to set.

This program is open to families with children ages 4 and up. S’mores supplies are provided. We’ll have tarps to sit on, but feel free to bring your own blankets and chairs. Remember to dress for the weather and wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.

Want the chance to use your new lantern? Ours will meet specifications for the Solstice Celebration Lantern Walk, lanternwalkfacebookeventcover-copyhosted by the Hillsborough Arts Council on December 18th at 5:30pm. Take your handmade lantern and join in celebrating the longest night of the year. For more information about the Walk, visit http://www.hillsboroughartscouncil.org/lantern-walk.

Get Wild! is Triangle Land Conservancy’s series of youth-oriented environmental education programs made possible with support from Duke Energy Foundation and the Merck – Neighbor of Choice Program.
