Minnewaska Homeschoolers: Autumn Leaves Identification and Craft
October 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join other homeschoolers on a two-mile hike around Lake Minnewaska to collect colorful, fallen leaves, learning about the trees they’ve come from along the way. Back at the Nature Center, we’ll demonstrate two simple methods to preserve leaves that can be done at home: pressing and using polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue. We’ll try our hand at these methods with the leaves we collected earlier. These colorful, preserved leaves are perfect for use in scrapbooks and as fall decorations! This program is recommended for children over the age of seven, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 18. Well-behaved younger siblings are always welcome to join the program. The total number of participants for this program is limited to twelve individuals. Meet at the Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
