NATURALIST’S LUNCHBOX AT GILLETTE PARK
If you’re stuck in a rut during your workday lunch, then here’s a great opportunity to do something different. Cherokee County Conservation Board’s naturalist, Laura Jones, is inviting you to spend your lunch break with her at Gillette Park.
The Naturalist’s Lunchbox is an outdoor program that runs from Noon-1:00pm with hands-on activities beginning around 12:20pm. Each program will take 30-45 minutes and will be on a different topic. Come at noon to enjoy your lunch, then take part in the activities!
The program is free of charge and will contain fun activities geared towards families with children ages 13 and under, but everyone is welcome! Activities will take place at or near the big shelter in Gillette Park, next to the Bacon Aquatic Center, so when you’re done with lunch and our fun activities, you can head to the pool or play in the playground!
Due to Covid-19, participants during the program will be encouraged to social distance and use hand sanitizer before and after touching CCCB objects. Participants may bring their own mask to wear as well. Please do not come to any activities if you’re not feeling well, have been exposed to, or have had symptoms related to Covid-19 within the last two weeks.
Bring your lunch, blanket if you want to sit in the grass, and be prepared for any type of weather. Please leave the family pet at home. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Get outside and see what’s in the Naturalist’s Lunchbox!
For more information, contact Laura at the Cherokee County Conservation Board by calling 712-225-6709 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
