Otherwise, just scroll down and check out all the upcoming Bermuda fun over the next month or so.
As always, don’t forget to check out the Quick Recap Section at the bottom of the post for a full listing of all upcoming events, including those previously covered in previous posts.
A great way to connect your kids with the natural world around them, the Bermuda National Trust presents its Annual Children’s Nature Walk at Spittal Pond on Thursday, February 16th.
Spittal Pond is one of Bermuda’s most spectacular open spaces, this 64-acre reserve is part of a necklace of wetlands along the South Shore, providing a diversity of habitats and an amazing variety of birds, especially during the migration seasons. It is Bermuda’s largest and most important bird sanctuary.
Children and guardians will have the opportunity to experience nature first hand on the walk, as well as observe some of our cultural landmarks while they hear fascinating stories from the past. They will be taken along the route by the Trust’s enthusiastic guides stopping at points of interest to learn about biodiversity, habitats, history, geology and conservation from the island’s leading environmental and cultural experts.
This is for parents and children aged between 5 and 12, running from 9.30am until noon, with groups leaving the eastern parking lot every 15 minutes. The walk takes approximately 90 minutes so you should wear suitable clothes and shoes for rugged terrain. Light snacks are available and you are invited to bring your own water bottle that they can fill.
The walk is not suitable for dogs, baby prams or very young children. Parking is available in the field behind Harrington Hundreds grocery store.
This event is free and groups of more than three are asked to pre-register.
For more information, or to register your group, contact Dr Dorte Horsfield, the Bermuda National Trust Director of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 236-6483 ext. 212. Continue reading this post…
