Get ready to see nature in a new, exciting way and learn about the many roles of a scientist! This week we’ll build an outdoor laboratory and come up with wild experiments as a group to answer questions like, “Why are some leaves green while others are not? Why do beavers live in the water?” Join us in exploring the Hallam Lake nature preserve as a biologist, geologist, entomologist, botanist and more, all while conducting science experiments and projects outside!
What To Bring:
Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!
How To Get There:
Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Hallam Lake whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.
BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to Hallam Lake in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more.
PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Hallam Lake visitors only. Please park efficiently. Drop-off overflow parking for Hallam Lake programs is available in the West End (2 hour free parking) with an easy walk down the stairs to the center. We are an IDLE FREE community.
