Learn how to live off the land this June at Discovery Place Nature
Discovery Place Nature
Discovery Place Nature will be living off the land this month and teaching visitors how they can do the same.
You can kick off the survivalist fun on June 1 by learning how to make DIY Seed Balls at 12:30 p.m. After all, growing your own plants is a necessity if you want to live off the land. Plus, butterflies and bees will love these native plants as much as you do! DIY Seed Balls will be offered again on June 5.
On June 15, from 9 a.m. to noon, celebrate Farm Day at the Museum by joining us to learn about the roles farm animals play in the farming community. You’ll also have a chance to get up close and personal with some special farm animals!
Visitors can learn how to Forage the Forest on June 19 and June 22 as naturalists guide a hike on the Paw Paw Nature Trail and unearth some of the edible plants you may see in the Carolinas this summer. Our monthly Nature Walk will take place on June 22, too!
On June 26, our naturalists will be Entwined in Vines as they explore the many ways you can use invasive vines found in your back yard to help you live off the land. You’ll be surprised at just how many uses there are for a single vine!
Shelter is essential to living off the land but knowing how to construct a shelter that will keep you dry and warm overnight is not always easy. Test out your skills and learn some different techniques to Seek Shelter on June 29 outside of the Museum in Fort Wild.
Daily Seasonal Stargazing shows and other fun activities scheduled this month can round out your learning as you get back to nature at the Museum.
