Trekkers & Explorers After-School Program (Spring 2020)

March 11 @ 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, repeating until June 3, 2020

North Branch Nature Center, 713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602
$425

Let your kids be kids on Wednesday afternoons at NBNC. Our Explorers (1st - 3rd grade) and Trekkers (4th - 8th grade) programs offer kids time to explore the woods and fields, play stealth and awareness games, and learn outdoor skills with their peers. One week your child might forage for wild edibles and cook over an open fire, while the next week might find them deep in the woods, building shelters, and using the local landscape to practice outdoor living skills such as tracking and fire-starting. Thoughtful and loosely directed play in the woods helps kids develop a sense of place while unwinding with a peer group.

Amphibian Ecology and Road Crossing Training Night

March 18 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
North Branch Nature Center, 713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602

Join NBNC scientists to learn about our Amphibian Road Crossing program, and find out how you can help Vermont's frogs and salamanders safely cross the road during their annual spring movements. Every April, amphibians migrate by the millions from upland forests to wetland breeding grounds, often crossing roadways at their peril. North Branch Nature Center's ARC program trains volunteers to survey known and suspected road crossing sites and help amphibians across the road while collecting valuable data to inform local conservation and transportation planning efforts. Over the last two years, NBNC volunteers conducted 300 surveys and documented 8,700 salamanders at 60 crossing sites across Central Vermont! This citizen science project accommodates volunteers of all ages and background-- the only requirement is an eagerness to enjoy and protect our local amphibians!

Gallery Opening: “Biophilia” by Nick Neddo

April 3 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
North Branch Nature Center, 713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602

Biophilia is a new exploration along one of the most consistent themes of Neddo’s artwork: our relationship to the natural world, our ancestors and the skills held in their ancient hands. This is a multi-disciplinary exhibit that features sculptural forms woven with willow and papier mache, as well as paintings, prints, and drawings, all made with tools and materials crafted directly from the natural landscape. The paintings are created with handmade paintbrushes with paint made from stones; the drawings are created with handmade pens and inks from a variety of botanical sources; the work itself is an invitation to go inward towards one’s own wildness, as well as a beckoning to remember how to learn from the wild outside.
