Each month, Hillary Schwirtlich, our Membership & Education Coordinator, writes a column in the Wenatchee World about fun, cheap and easy ways to explore nature with your kids. The column usually include a little bit of background information about that month's theme, followed by two-three hands on activities about that theme. Check back monthly for more ideas!
You will need a Wenatchee World subscription to view these articles, but many are available on the Wenatchee Moms Blog at no cost.
