Local youngsters are invited to enjoy spring break at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve, which will host educational programs Monday, Wednesday and Friday, April 1, 3 and 5, from 10 a.m. to noon. Education specialists with the Cache Creek Conservancy will staff interactive discovery stations with hands-on learning for families who drop in during the two-hour window.
While the focus is on elementary-age students, everyone is welcome to learn more about the natural environment of the nature preserve.
Monday’s program is “Mammals and Tracks,” Wednesday will feature “Rocks and Minerals” and Friday is “Bugs in the Creek.” There is no charge for this activity. Visitors are welcome to stay and take a walk along the trails or bring a lunch to enjoy following the presentations.
“Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring your own water, as drinking water is not available on site,” a news release said.
