‘Woodsy Owl’ teaches kids about nature

Written by 

“Woodsy Owl’s Curiosity Club,” a nature and educational series presented by The Cradle of Forestry, will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon every Thursday this summer, ending Aug. 4. The club is for kids ages 4 to 7 and their guardians to participate in activities, explore the theme of forestry and learn to care for the land alongside Woodsy Owl, the U.S. Forest Service’s conservation symbol.

During the program, each child will receive a copy of the book Woodsy Owl’s ABCs and will make a craft specific to a forestry topic to bring home. Kids can also participate in the Forest Discovery Center scavenger hunt or the Adventure Zone, designed for children on the autism spectrum. Topics for the series include Plants: Parts and Crafts on June 9, Critter Tricks on July 21, Fire Safety on Aug. 4 and many others.

The curiosity club costs $4 per child and $2.50 for adult guardians. The Cradle of Forestry is located in the Pisgah National Forest, six miles north of Looking Glass Falls at milepost 412 on Highway 276.

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
