Two Stillwater High School juniors have implemented a Nature Play Activity project in the nature center’s yard for their Gold Girl Scout Award. Laura Chandler and Sarah Mittelstadt created several nature play stations for families with young children.
Their additions include a music circle, sand pit, balancing logs, child size picnic table and chalk box to engage young children and their families to explore the outdoors with their senses, imagination and curiosity.
The girls have worked very hard with family and friends in collaboration with naturalist staff and the Friends of Maplewood Nature to enhance MNC yard’s existing natural and landscaped space.
