Sign Up Time--Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature

It's signup time again for our nature club, Library Learning Patch-Children Discovering Nature. Children ages 6-9 are invited to sign up through January 26, 2013. This program is co-sponsored by the Red River County Public Library and the Red River Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist organization.

This is the third year for our nature club. We will again use our garden as a vehicle to explore the natural world around us. The classes will begin February 19 and will continue through June 25.  We will meet Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Children will plant, tend and harvest their garden. During our sessions we will learn about soil composition, helpful and harmful insects, the water cycle, birds, botany, and the interrelationship between plants, animals and humans. We plan to have guest speakers share their expertise.

Class size is limited, so early signup is encouraged! We're looking forward to many fun-filled afternoons.
