LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The Lake County Land Trust is continuing to sponsor its third Saturday of the month children’s Nature Education Program at the Rodman Preserve near Upper Lake.
The program is planned for June 16, and starts at 9 a.m. Local naturalist, Elaine Mansell, will lead kids on a “Rodman Adventure,” where they learn about different habitats of the area, check out flora and fauna under real microscopes and play fun nature games on the back porch.
Parents are welcome to attend, or can go on the Saturday morning walk on the preserve if they choose. Mansell is well-known as the former leader of the Junior Ranger program at Clear Lake State Park, and has spent her life educating children about the wonders of nature. She likes to “get kids out to look at stuff and learn about nature and have fun.”
The Land Trust is asking for reservations for the program and this can be accomplished by calling Elaine Mansell at 707-263-1637. The program is designed to help fulfill requirements for nature activities for various youth organizations.
The Rodman Preserve and Nature Education Center is at 6350 Westlake Road, Upper Lake. For complete directions, visit the Land Trust Web site, www.lakecountylandtrust.org .
