World of Wonder
Parents and children can explore, discover and enjoy nature together in World of Wonder, a program sponsored by the Davidson Lands Conservancy and Woodland Discovery.
Never miss a local story.
WOW will consist of activities and nature information for all ages at the Davidson Farmer's Market and other nature outings. These free events are open to all and require adult accompaniment.
Activities at the Davidson Farmer's Market include making your own spiders on Oct. 16 and creating pictures with leaves on Nov. 6. Those activities are 10:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
Some nature outings will involve the whole family; others will have age limits to ensure children's safety.
One off-site outing coming up soon is "Where Do Spiders Hide?" from 10 to 11:45 a.m., also on Oct. 16. This free outing is led by David Grant, professor emeritus of biology at Davidson College, a consultant with Discovery Place and adjunct curator at the Schiele Museum.
Children must be age 4 or older to attend "Where Do Spiders Hide?" and must be accompanied by an adult. The group is limited to 16 people. It will leave the Davidson Farmer's Market and carpool to Irwin Lodge; maps will be provided. Wear sturdy shoes with socks; consider wearing long sleeves and long pants. The group will be on and off trails in open woodland.
Registration forms for "Where Do Spiders Hide?" are at the Farmer's Market, or email email@example.com, or visit www.woodlandsdiscovery.org. Return forms to the WOW booth at the Farmer's Market or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org before the Wednesday before the program.
