Rogers Environmental Education Center in Sherburne invites children and adults to take part together in a program on leaf art at 11 a.m. Saturday Sept. 26. Autumn leaves are beautiful as they change color and then drift to the ground. The group will collect some leaves and learn about the important work they do for the tree in summer, why they change color and fall at this time of year, and how nature recycles them.
The group will then use the leaf collections to create wonderful animals and collages to take home. Please call (607) 674-4017 to register. Children between the ages of 4 and 12 are suggested for this activity, while an adult should accompany each child.
