Children under age 6 must have an adult in the room with them. Legos will also be provided for older children.

Since this is part of a grant, optional feedback surveys will be provided for parents and caregivers to fill out. The information collected by these surveys will help the state and national library associations determine the types of educational toys which are appropriate for libraries.

We will provide photo release forms for those parents/guardians who are willing to have their child photographed using the grant materials. We will not photograph children who do not have a signed release form on file.

Spring Workshops – Wetlands & Watersheds

The SFCG has been working on improving our local creeks. Learn about our local watershed, what is being done, and what we can all do to reduce our ecological footprint. We will explore all that wetlands do for us and why they are important using the Enviroscape – an interactive watershed model.  The SF School District is home to the SFCG wetland project which we will visit.  During our hike, we will explore the plants that are unique to wetlands, and see firsthand how important wetlands are not only for wildlife, but in helping us to control pollution and flooding. Be an environmental scientist using chemical water quality tests, and search for creek creatures that help to determine water quality. We will also discover how wetlands help to cleanup abandoned mine drainage (AMD) during our field trip to Wingfield Pines, a wetland reclamation site. At WIngfield, we’ll see firsthand how wetlands remove AMD from entering into Chartiers Creek, test the water quality, and observe how wildlife interacts in this habitat. We’ll dissect a wetland plant, build a  watershed model, play a wetland game, explore uses for AMD & more!
