Grades 3 - 7
Come build a meadow!
Join new friends in doing something helpful for pollinators, birds and wildlife: continue to shape Summer at Park’s existing meadow and create new mini-meadows around our wonderful campus.
Be an Eco-hero and a Naturalist!
With your friends, you can plant and care for native flowers, while observing and recording the wonders of biodiversity at the meadow and around campus. Learn all about soil, weather, insects, pollinators, native plants, and trees. Through games, art, and science activities, you’ll see how your meadows provide essential food, shelter, and habitat for wildlife above and below the ground. During the two weeks of camp, you’ll get dirty and become an expert on native plants. You’ll design, build, and present to others your ecosystem gardens filled with native plants.
See how much fun the campers had in years past while creating the meadow and sign up to continue this amazing journey with us. Not only will we have fun being outdoors all the time, but the bees, birds, and butterflies will appreciate what you do too!
