Habitat Hike at Dutro Ernst Woods with Red-Tail

 

We had a great turn out for the Habitat Hike at Dutro Ernst Wood. Thank you to Red-tail Land Conservancy for leading this hike for all our young friends and their grown ups as they explored the woods and played among the nature play areas. The Quakenbush Family won a nature book and The Braswell Family won a nature kit just for participating in the habitat hike.

This habitat hike was part of Muncie Children’s Museum’s free summer program, “More to Explore in Muncie”, with weekly nature events sponsored by Muncie Altrusa Foundation. Every time your family attends a “More to Explore in Muncie” nature event, you will be entered into a drawing for a free family membership to MCM to be given away in August.

Make sure you check our website event’s page or Facebook page for details for next week’s “More to Explore in Muncie” nature event.
