Become a nature artist for the week! Help us fill the Bent of the River with camper designed land art: mud creatures on tree trunks, toad and fairy homes, and sand and clay structures. We'll use the materials we find throughout our meadow, river, and forest.

July 15-19         - Creature Powers

We'll explore some awesome animal "powers" as we transform ourselves and "become" the animals.

Splash into our Pomperaug River, dip in our vernal pool, and explore Crayfish Alley!

Spend the week “blitzing” our 700-acre wildlife sanctuary, as we record every species that we can find!

Explore the forest floor and look for interesting items that have fallen from trees and plants. Can you find colorful leaves, fluffy feathers, and clues of animal evidence? Make a nature bracelet with some of the treasures you find.
