Explore the Outdoors: May 10 in Way Park

explore the outdoors logoThe Friends of Way Park, together with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and PBS stations across the country, announce the second annual Explore the Outdoors gathering on Saturday, May 10 in Northfield’s Way Park.

The Explore the Outdoors event was inspired by a PBS and NRPA initiative to get kids outdoors. PBS has a month of children's programming related to "earth themes," and this year they've created a new website called Plum Landing, which they launched right before Earth Day. In cooperation with NRPA, they have put together some resources for parents and activity sheets.

Once again, FWP is partnering with several local organizations to present a full afternoon of outdoor fun. The event will take place in Way Park from 1:00–4:00 pm on Saturday, May 10, and will include:
See you in the park!
