New Youth Program at Brooker Creek Preserve Starts January 22

What better way to start the new year than to explore one of Pinellas county’s best wild places? Starting January 22 at 1:00, Brooker Creek and Pinellas 4-H will introduce the Brooker Creek Explorers Program. This program is geared towards 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who are interested in the natural world around us. You do not have to be a 4-H member to register; this program is open to the public. There will be three meetings; each will focus on a different way of learning about and appreciating our natural resources and Brooker Creek in particular. All sessions will meet 1:00 – 3:00.
January 22: Paper Pieces – Make your own paper and journal after learning about the ways paper is made and recycled. A digital or disposable camera will be helpful.
February 5: What Can You Find? – Increase your powers of observations through all your senses in a forestry scavenger hunt. Add to your journal.
February 19: Trees as Habitats – How big is an ecosystem? Explore the various habitats at Brooker Creek and decide for yourself.
All activities used are from Florida 4-H Forestry and Project Learning Tree. The Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center is located at 3940 Keystone Road, Tarpon Springs.
