On Saturday, November 21, the TGO Nature Center and visitors celebrated “Gobble Gobble” Day which was this month’s theme for our Family Day At The Nature Center and it was all about our favorite Thanksgiving bird—the turkey! Our guests enjoyed making paper plate turkey name badges, turkey pinecones, cup turkey gobblers (cups made into the shape of a turkey and when you pull the string threaded through the cup, it sounds like a turkey call), pin the tail on the turkey, fox and turkey tag game and the food craft—making a turkey and a pilgrim hat using Oreo cookies, Reese’s peanut butter cups, Whoppers, candy corn all held together with frosting—YUMMY!  Yep, we sugared up the kids (and some kids at heart) and sent them home happy.

Enjoy the photos below of our fun day.  Click on any photo to get a closer look.

The day took the creativity and work of our volunteers pictured below. They include Betty and Cary Salter, Joni Bennett, Jeanne Colca, Roz Grimm, Sandy Juba, Carol Loehr, Geri Major, Bob and Linda Mink, Cin Nedvin, Maris Tracy, Jane Williams, and not pictured, our photographer and reporter, Darlene Durham.

The paper plate turkey name “badge” may say Ms. Jane but that’s Joni Bennett hiding behind that mask.

Carol Loehr (left holding the gobbler) and Maris Tracy manned the gobbler station.  Carol was so excited the gobbler worked.  The gobbler is a cup with a string threaded through a hole and when you moistened the string a bit and yank it, it makes the sound of a turkey call.

Caidon and John Smith have their paper plate turkey name badges completed so they moved on to the pin the tail on the turkey challenge.  First they have to color a turkey feather.

Betty Salter (right in photo below) explains the fox and turkey chase game with Destiny Arreola (left), Emma Dunmire (center with fox mask), William Arreola (right with hat on) and Max Dunmire (with his back to the camera).  Betty has some acorns which she will put on the ground for the three “turkeys” to pick up before Emma, the fox, comes from behind the bush and catches them.  Can the “turkeys” get their acorns to eat and get to their safe spot before the fox catches and eats them?
