A favorite activity of Nature Center summer campers is making “peep” houses for imaginary creatures that live in the forest. This workshop takes that idea further, using pine cones, leaves, sticks and seeds to create miniature forest creatures – some real and some fantastical.

In addition to its obvious craft nature, this workshop will also give you a different perspective on the outdoors, focus your attention on things you might not otherwise notice, and channel your creativity into a unique, place-based item. You will also learn more about the plants and animals of the region and showcase them in one-of-a-kind creations.

Sarah Hatfield, senior naturalist at the Audubon Nature Center, stumbled onto making these creatures during one very long winter.

Participants who have a mini-glue gun are asked to bring it.

Class size is limited. The fee is $16 for the public or $12 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15.
