ECO Kids Discovery Day at Bernheim
Join the Bernheim team for Damsels and Dragons. Children will observe and identify damsels and dragons -- damselflies and dragonflies, that is – through the day’s On Your Own Challenge. Kids and their families will have fun searching for these amazing insects throughout the day and then exploring hands-on Discovery Stations during the afternoon from 1 – 4p.m. The Hike of the Day starts at 2 p.m. at the Visitor Center. There is no cost to participate in ECO Kids but the standard gate fee of $5 per car applies for non-members.
