Every parent of a preschooler knows the challenge of trying to find affordable things to do that will be fun and provide an educational experience. Now through May 22, the Hartley Nature Center has the perfect fit.
Hartley Park is significant to the region. It's not only beautiful but it is rich in history and full of diverse habitats. In order to preserve all it has to offer, Minnesota Power's Rajala Woods Initiative, the City of Duluth, and Hartley Nature Center have joined forces to plant a significant number of trees.
The end of the school year is near and if you're like me when my daughter was young, you're too busy to research and find exciting constructive things for your kids to do to fill their time this summer. Since my daughter Kylee is graduating from UMD in May, I have time to do the research and help you out.
We can't beat this winter so we should at least enjoy it! You can do it in a whole bunch of ways, skating, sledding, downhill skiing OR you could cross country ski with the Duluth XC Ski Club. Invite your family and friends to join you for the Tour Duluth. It's great exercise and a fun way to create memories that will last a lifetime!
Learning doesn't have to stop just because the kids are on winter break. Not when we have Hartley Nature Center in our own backyard. If your daycare provider is taking a vacation, this could be your answer! The kids will learn to enjoy winter, make the most of our unique season with the help of Winter Camps, but hurry, you need to sign up now, because space is limited and going fast!
If you like working side by side with nature, or, if you've wanted to start getting outdoors more, here's your chance. Plus, you'll be volunteering. Both will do the body and soul good!
Over the next two months, a restoration and improvement of the bike trails in Hartley Nature Center Park will take place...
