Saturday, April 7 some 30 preschoolers and caregivers had a onderful outdoor experiences at Springbrook Park. Weather held off. Many thanks to Laura Tanz, Sue Thomas, and Megan Big John who led the children into the woods and worms.

Friday morning, April 13, the children from LO Community Arts Preschool were led on walks in Springbrook Park. They learned about trees and how they grow, connect with nature, and return with dead bark to support wildlife. Special thanks to our leaders Anne Lider, Sue Thomas and Laura Tanz.

Walkers joined City staff and volunteers from 10-10:45 a.m. for a stroll through Springbrook Park on the trails behind Uplands Elementary School (2055 Wembley Park Road), complete with discovery buckets and exploration tools. Kids learn how the trunk, roots and leaves all work to keep the trees healthy. Participants also play “healthy tree bingo” as they walk through the park. The event is aimed at kids ages 2-6, but all are welcome and free.
