Coming Events at Wetzel SRA in April
FRIENDS OF WC WETZEL STATE PARK 

94 Attend Field Trips at Wetzel SRA!

MAY 2013


Dear <<First Name>>,

Maybe the most enjoyable, rewarding and incredible things that Friends does at Wetzel are the annual field trips.  This year we had 82 fourth grade students and 12 adults and teachers participating from two schools on May 6 and May 13.  (Visit http://www.fowsra.org for photos) It is so awesome to see the students interact in our natural world, some never having experienced a place like Wetzel SRA before.  Watching a student overcome her fear of snakes or seeing the frown of having to walk down a muddy path turn into smiles of joy at finding pollywogs and mosquito wigglers in the pond water bring a smile to my face every time.  The kids are like sponges, absorbing so much knowledge in just a few hours. How do I know? I ask. And every one, every time, answers.
What did you learn? 'That snakes aren't slimy.' 'That dandelions are many flowers, not just one.' 'That birds have territories so there is enough food for their young.' 'That earth belongs to everyone and everything and we need to learn about it in order to take care of it.'
Pond dipping at Wetzel SRATake your kids to Wetzel.  Teach them something about the outdoors.  They're listening.
