Tracked Out: Prairie Ridge has some free options for you
I know we've got some kids who are tracked out this month. Prairie Ridge Ecostation has some great weekday activities for kids and families this month.Posted — Updated
My family loves this place. The spot is an outdoor research lab for the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences in west Raleigh off Reedy Creek Road with trails and a great nature playground.
Here's what's scheduled in September:
Walk through the Seasons is 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. That would make it Sept. 9 and Sept. 23 (and also Oct. 14 and Oct. 28). During this 90-minute program, a guide will take you on a walk through the site and share information about the seasonal changes in nature. Children must be accompanied by a registered adult. To register, email Cathy Fergen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-707-8878.
And, on Saturdays, Citizen Science Saturday walk are at 10:30 a.m., Saturdays. The walks are best for kid ages 8 and up. Participants learn about how they can contribute to science during regular science walks. It's free. No pre-registration required. Kids must be with an adult.
