Join us for our first adult painting event held at Rock Hollow Woods Environmental Learning Center on Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 1:00-3:30 p.m.

Imagine a crisp Fall afternoon in our pavilion: the fire crackling softly, laughing with friends, and receiving helpful painting instruction from a talented local artist, Karen Zueno (credited for painting our beautiful honeybee mural and the wooden entrance sign.)

Participants:
*Will go through a step-by-step process to paint a Halloween-themed gourd
*May choose to enter a 50/50 raffle
*Have the opportunity to enter a raffle for one of Karen's hand-painted pieces

This event is BYO beverages and snacks. (A safe space to eat and drink will be set up, and cups will be provided.)

The little adventurers in our Nature Pre-K program are having a great time exploring the wonders of Rock Hollow Woods! They've learned what it means to be part of a community and have delved into Autumn 'wonders.' The most recent, "I wonder why leaves change color?" resulted in a leaf chromatography experiment in which the children separated the pigments within Fall leaves they collected.
