We have a new activity in the TGO Nature Center.  The next time you visit the nature center, go to the library and find the green clipboards with the “Find The Items In The Nature Center” lists.  As you tour the museum and the displays in the meeting room, see how many items on the list you can locate.  This is a great activity and learning experience to share with children and grandchildren.

If you can’t find an item and need a hint, lift up the bottom of the sheet to reveal “Location Hints” on the other side of the list.

Thank you to TD Bank for donating the pens!
