Berewick Recreation Center needs volunteers for their
"Brininging the Outdoors In" program.
WHEN: Wednesday, July
TIME: 9:00 am-3:00 pm
WHAT: “Bringing the Outdoors In” has been selected as a winner
of the National Parks Build Community Campaign and will receive a
$20,000 grant from the National Recreation and Park Association
(NRPA) and The Walt Disney Company, including Disney Citizenship,
WHERE: “Bringing the Outdoors In” at Wallace
Pruitt, Berewick, and Hickory Grove Recreation Centers will
incorporate nature and gardening education into the programming for
youth and their parents through our Fun Fit Centers. This project
will allow year round programming & education for the public.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Park & Recreation Department focuses on
Health & Wellness Programming as well as conservation so “Bringing
the Outdoors In” will connect youth to nature and expose the
participants to a variety of new experiences by introducing them to
trees, science tables, discovery sand and water tables, books, art
easels and crafts, real life nature specimens they can view up close,
and hands on activities.
The healthy living
component will increase the awareness of gardening, the importance
of vegetables and fruits, and a healthy lifestyle. The kids will use age
appropriate gloves and tools to garden and create sprout and grow
gardens, which they will plant outside. These programs will provide
socialization, opportunities to gain new knowledge and skills, and a
sense of achievement in producing their own healthy food.
