On Saturday we took the boys to a special program at the Walnut Creek Wetlands Center in Raleigh called, Mud: A Celebration of Wetlands. Some of the families from our Scout Troop met up to enjoy the muddy fun.
There were several different stations where kids could explore, play and learn about mud, wetlands, wildlife and the environment. The boys particularly loved the fort building station which was equipped with bamboo sticks, rope, cardboard and tarps.
We got to meet several turtles from the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and some Salamanders, frogs and other creatures that you might find in the wetlands.
There were several stations that taught kids about native plants, storm water, pollution and other elements that impact the wetlands.
And of course there was mud. Lots of mud to cook with, paint with, and play in.
It was fun and muddy day and we can’t wait for the next adventure with the Raleigh Parks.
