RAIN PLANS Open House- Sat April 22


Due to predicted rain and thunderstorms on Saturday April 22nd, we are planning to:

-end the Open House at 1pm (when weather is supposed to get worse.)

For those ticket holders of 10a-1p sessionyou can come as planned.

For those ticket holders of  1p-4p session, you can come to the MORNING SESSION 10a-1p!

We will plan to do as many activities as the weather allows, but there may be a few showers in the morning. 

We will move some programs inside if possible and have a tent over the campfire for S’MORES!

Please bring rain gear and sturdy shoes. 

The Outdoor Lab is wonderful on a warm, cloudy day.  Students go outside for field trips no matter the weather.  (Some animals venture out and fish seem to be hungrier;)

Thank you for understanding.

Mike Maleski, President
