Let’s go where curiosity leads! Land Trust of North Alabama’s Nature Play Camp seeks to hone children’s innate curiosity in nature and allow them the freedom to explore. Topics for the week will include water critters, fossils, being nature detectives, map reading, animal adaptations, tracks, scat, the magic of trees, and more! Along with our exploration, we’ll include puzzles, crafts, games, and lots of splashing in Fagan Creek.
