Bird Seed Sale to Benefit Boxerwood
Saturday January 24, 2015
Meet with Boxerwood's Horticulturist Faith Vosburgh for a Winter Tree Walk
The walk is free and open to the public
Meet at Boxerwood's Munger Lodge
to announce a “Flash!” Snow Day
“Put on your mittens and come play at Boxerwood!” That’s the message
nature center staff plan to spread on social media after the region’s first big
snowfall. Their aim is to encourage more kids and families to brave the cold and
experience the fun and exhilaration of playing together outdoors in winter.
A “FLASH! Boxerwood Snow Day!” will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, and
the Boxerwood webpage (www.boxerwood.org)
the morning of a spontaneously-scheduled Snow Day. Member families will receive
an email and the nature center will record a message for callers on voicemail
(463-2697). Note that the Boxerwood event will not necessarily take place during
weather-related school closings, when driving may be hazardous, but may take
place after school on the following day.
During the Boxerwood Snow Day, kids of all ages are welcome to go sledding
in the field (bring your own sleds and saucers), make snow people and animals, build
igloos and forts and castles, and have friendly snowball fights. Although staff
will be on hand to monitor activities, all children without exception must
be accompanied by an adult responsible for their safety and behavior.
So stay tuned…. After the first big snow, when roads have been cleared,
check your favorite social media or call the nature center to find out and help
spread the word about a Boxerwood Snow Day!
