Connect with the natural world through art and science discovery programs

Dear Families and Friends,

While Strawtown has suspended programming for our Summer months, we have been enjoying seeing old friends and meeting new ones via our Summer NatureART Box zoom sessions held each Tuesday. It was an amazing experience to see all the inspiration and creativity from near and far!

As the season passes in to Fall, please continue to check our website regarding upcoming programming. As school schedules develop and public health and safety becomes more stable, we will create programs that can bring the best of Strawtown to all of our families and educators.

Until then, you can still explore our FREE At Home Activities by registering with just your name, zip code, and email. Whether you have an hour or a day, each activity can be customized to the weather, the materials you have on hand, or who you’re with. We hope you have loads of creative adventure!

More to come!

All the Best,
The Strawtown Team
