Many different types of animals live at the DNS nature center, but it is rare to get a glimpse of them.  Spend a day at the nature center learning about the signs that animals leave behind.  We will delve into what those signs can teach us about the various animals that call the nature center home.

Mud Day (FULL)

Do you enjoy getting dirty?  Join DNS for a day of mud, mud, and more mud.  We will begin the day learning about the science of soil and then dig into our creative side as we use mud as an art medium.  The day will end with us using mud to make ourselves invisible in the landscape.  It will be a great day to let loose and explore your dirty side.
Items to bring:  Daypack with lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunscreen, sun hat, hiking shoes, swimsuit, and towel.
