Connecting Kids with Natural Resources
Kids Day for Conservation is coming to Corvallis, OR and the Benton County Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 9, 2010 from 10 am until 4 pm and your family is invited!
This eighth annual event is free, fun, and focused on hands-on natural resources education designed to help kids make a difference for conservation in their community. Numerous natural resources-connected organizations and businesses will be on hand to present a wide variety of activities suitable for children of all ages.
You will race solar cars. There will be do-it-yourself nature art projects. You can build a bird house to take home and join the animal parade! Learn how to conserve energy. Participate in the Oregon Forest Scavenger Hunt and learn about farm and forest products that are produced locally. Discover the magic of wood, meet Search and Rescue dogs and more. This is only a sample of all that you can see and do at Kids Day!
There will truly be something for everyone at Kids Day for Conservation. The event will be held under cover, rain or shine. Come spend an hour or half the day with us. Food and drink will be available for purchase. For more information about Kids Day, call 541-766-6750 or check out http://extension.oregonstate.edu/benton/KDC
