No-School Nature Play Day

ChesLen Preserve | Fri, February 16, 2018, 10:00am - 12:00pm

School is cool, but a no-school day means time to play! Come out to Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround for some wintertime fun. Enjoy yummy treats, and make crafts out of birdseed for feathered friends.

Weather conditions permitting, our Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround will be open, so please dress warmly. Event check-in, crafts, and light refreshments will be inside ChesLen Preserve’s Lenfest Center.

ChesLen Preserve is the largest privately owned nature preserve open to the public in Chester County. Miles of marked hiking trails lead visitors through shady woodlands, flower-filled meadows, fields of corn and soybeans, and stream valleys.

Visitors can also explore Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround, where young explorers can climb logs, build stick tee-pees, hunt for bugs, explore small streams, and get a little dirty, tired, and inspired. Free play is encouraged and is a great way for kids to gain an appreciation for nature.

Suitable for ages 4 – 10; but kids of all ages will find themselves having fun too!

Wear sturdy, well-insulated boots, especially if snow is on the ground.

Warm winter layers, hats, gloves, and scarves are recommended to keep warm and dry.

This is a drop-in event so please feel free to stay and play as little or long as you like.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
