Pamplin Media Group – Clackamas Community College aims to get kids outside

The Environmental Learning Center’s Spring into Nature kits are designed to encourage kids to explore

Clackamas Community College equips young outdoor enthusiasts with activities to help kickstart the new season and inspire curiosity about the world around them. This spring, the college’s Environmental Learning Center is offering new Explorer Kits.

Spring into Nature Explorer Kits is all about the magic of spring – spotting baby wildlife, sprouting seeds, opening buds and hearing the birds chirp. The kit comes with convenient home delivery and includes all the supplies budding naturalists need to learn, create and play – just in time for spring break.

Kit includes:

• Easy-to-follow instructions

• Materials for making a nature-themed craft

• Nature journal page with fun facts

• A picture book about spring

• Activities to keep the kids exploring throughout the week

• The Spring to Nature Kit is a larger package than previous ELC kits and is designed for children aged 4-9 years. The kit is available for pre-order and will ship on March 17th. The cost is $50 but scholarships are available.
