Kickapoo Valley Reserve
Fall & Winter Workshops for Homeschoolers
The first four Fridays in November 2013 & February 2014
This series of special afternoon workshops is being offered again for area homeschoolers K – 12. The program of interactive, hands-on workshops is taught by KVR instructor / naturalists and aims to get children outside – immersed in nature. Most workshops will have an inside and outside component to them, so please make sure that children dress appropriately.
The Kickapoo Valley Reserve is an 8,569 acre tract of land located between the villages of La Farge and Ontario in southwestern Wisconsin. Its history, resources, administration, and recreational diversity make it unique – a place like no other.
You’ll need to pre-register by October 18 (for the November programs) and January 17 (for the February programs). But it’s a good idea to register right away as these programs have a limited number of spaces available.
Registration information is here.
You can sign up your children for any or all of the workshop dates. Each date has two programs for each age level (K-3 and 4th and up) and each child participating gets to attend both workshops being offered that day for his/her age group. The cost is just $8 per child per afternoon.
Some topics pulled from the various workshop offerings include:
willow crafting techniques make your own field journal migrating raptors snow tracking to identify tracks and scat cordage making
predator & prey construct scale model of solar system
build a watershed model Japanese fish printing winter wilderness skills
All the dates and workshop descriptions are at the KVR website, here.
Go take a look!
Please be sure to read this letter before your programs begin.
