Join us on Tuesday, September 23 to kick off Take a Child Outside Week with a special Nature Play Day—“Measurement Day”—from 10 am to 11:30 am. Come to the Nature PlaySpace for lots of fun. This day will be all about measuring the things around us. By using different measuring tools we can measure height, length, width, and volume of water, logs, trees, and anything else we find. 

The first fifty families with young children (under 7) will receive a free measuring device.

The event is FREE. All ages are welcome, but the event is designed especially for young children. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Participants are asked to dress appropriately for the weather, consider insect repellent, sunscreen and wear closed-toe shoes.
