Fun February at Cape Henlopen State Park
LEWES (Feb. 4, 2014) – It may be February, but there’s plenty of fun to be had for all ages at Cape Henlopen State Park. Three to five-year olds are invited to learn about nature through stories, games, crafts, and outdoor adventures at the monthly Guppy Club program on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 10:30 a.m. This month’s topic will be Loving Sea Shells. Kids will discover how different animals make shells, and why they love to carry them wherever they go. The program costs $3 per child. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
A Full Moon Hike - an after-dark exploration of the park will be held on Saturday, Feb.15 at 6:30 p.m. Participants will discover animals that come out after the sun sets. The program starts at the Seaside Nature Center and includes a guided hike to look and listen for animals, and learn about humans’ senses, too. This program is intended for ages seven and up with a paying adult, and costs $2 per person.
Both programs meet at the Seaside Nature Center and include a trip outdoors, so participants should dress warmly. Space for each program is limited, and registration is required. Information and registration are available at 302-645-6852.
The Seaside Nature Center is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the Borrow-A-Bike program is available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the Nature Center is open, weather permitting.
