It’s coming up! This Saturday August 18 from 2 to 4 pm, is Nature Day at Cadzow. Come enjoy the quieter, wilder, Church St. side of our beautiful park. This is a free, family-friendly event for all ages, but you do not need a family in tow to come check it out.
Please start at the welcome table near the Tamarack tree in the southwest corner of the park (where Park and Church streets meet). You will pick up a passport of activity stations and learn how to enter the draw for one of the three exciting (out) door prizes: family day passes to Wildwood and the quarry (both good through summer 2019) and a family pass to McCully’s Hill Farm harvest festival in October. Then you are off to explore and participate as you please. Chairs will be provided to make the event more grandparent-friendly.
Among the many optional nature-centered activities are: helping to create a fairy village near the museum, finding the St. Marys bird exhibit inside the museum, sitting and listening for sounds and where they are coming from, playing a plant concentration game or a blindfold tree game, matching cones and conifers, making a nature postcard and learning a bit of Oneida language with Patsy Day; drawing a tree that lives in the park or taking a closer look at the small wildflowers under our feet and little creatures we often overlook. There is so much to experience in our own “back yard”! Tired of activity? Sit or lie on the ground and rest, feel the earth and see the sky. Enjoy just being who and where you are!
There is no rain date, so the plan is “rain or shine”. If you have questions, want to help, or are interested but unable to attend, please email email@example.com or call 519-284-2698. Cadzow Village is an informal group of Cadzow-area neighbours promoting neighbourliness. Cadzow Park is a great place for getting together and making new friends. Nature Day may become an annual community event. See you there!
