Mimicking Nature's Architects
How do bees build hives? How are trees used to create homes for forest animals and plants? How do animals and plants work together to build protective, nurturing environments? This week, we will explore our Rock Bottom Ranch environments to inspire our own natural structures and spaces. We will create stone circles and towers, primitive shelters and furniture, and maybe even some bridges and tunnels!

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 Rock Bottom Ranch 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 the Ranch 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 Rock Bottom Ranch visitors only. Please park efficiently. No parking in ACES lots during closed hours. We are an IDLE FREE organization.
