Nature adventure

Preschool-aged children went on an adventure at the Grimes Farm & Conservation Center Wednesday as part of Nature Story Hour.

“We like to find any way to get people to enjoy nature,” said Carrie Barr, whose parents were donors to the land.

Wednesday’s theme was honeybees. Barr sat in the middle of 18 wiggly children and read them multiple stories about bees.

“I think it’s time for us to go for a walk,” she said.

Along the woodland trail a few children scampered ahead.

“The thing about walking slow through the woods, is that you get to see all the animals,” Barr said.

This convinced the children and they got to see some insects. After the hike, the kids had a picnic in the shelter.

The next Nature Story Hour is from 10 to 11 a.m. June 18 at the conservation center.
