Participants should bring a sack lunch and dress appropriately for the weather. Also, copies of the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide will be available to those who participate in the workshop.
Sunday's workshop RedTail in Africa will feature a presentation by RedTail, a Native American friend of the Nature Center, who will give insight into the Native American culture, discuss the natural history of Africa and share tales of his recent travels.
