CANCELED: Chest Full of Stories with Miss Karen

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday March 9

10:00 AM  –  11:00 AM


Are you looking for ways to increase your child's awareness of the natural world? Then join us for A Chest Full of Stories with Miss Karen, held monthly at Tyler! Exposing children to the wonders of nature has been shown to spark creativity and imagination, so we'd love to help families encourage a lifetime of learning about the world in which we live.

Come take a walk to the Schoolhouse down by Lucille's Garden. We will be listening to Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. The story will take you on a night walk through the woods alongside a father and his daughter. The father is listening for any night creatures of the winter. Will he find them? Come and find out. Children will learn some facts about Owls and make an owl craft.

This program is for children ages 3-6 with one supervising adult. Check in at the Visitor Center first, and then we will enjoy a short walk to an area that sparks our imaginations. This is an outdoor activity, so please dress accordingly. In case of rain, the group will meet in a protected area.
