Fall 2018 Open House Highlights

Thanks to all who braved the cool, windy temperatures and participated in the Fall Open House at the Outdoor Lab.

Families enjoyed catching fish in the pond, roasting hotdogs and S’mores by the Cottage fireplace, and learning about the animals who reside in our Animal Lab.  Others joined a hike lead by Lab Directors Christine Payack and Kate Sydney and many played tether ball and frisbee at the Pondside Meadow.

We saw many familiar faces as families returned to experience the outdoors, volunteers took up familiar spots helping our anglers, selling Outdoor Lab shirts and honey and sharing their stories about our treasured space in the woods.  We were also joined by our APS partners from the school board and central office.

We took time to recognize Clare McLean as our 2018 Volunteer of the year!  Clare first came to the Outdoor Lab as a kindergartner, then joined the lab staff during the year and for Summer Camp and now is a member of the AOEA Board of Directors.  Thanks to Clare for her limitless support of the Outdoor Lab.

All enjoyed their time on a crisp fall day and left energized by their time experiencing nature.

Mark your calendars for our Spring Open House Saturday May 4th from 12-4pm!  We hope to see you there!
