Nature Playscape: An Outdoor Creative Space for Families

Go Outside and Play!

Remember tree forts and grass paths? Climbing a tree and splashing in a creek? Remember a time when children played outside from dawn until dusk…until Mom or Dad called you in…and if you didn’t get in fast enough, you might hear your first and middle name?

Here at the Discovery Center, we encourage visitors and members to explore and experience the outdoors. The Discovery Center is a place of wonder, of inspiration and DISCOVERY for children of all ages. One of our long-held dreams is to create a space for safe exploration and play.

With your help, the 2017 Fund-A-Wish Nature Playscape: An Outdoor Creative Space for Families will ensure an inspiring place for children and adults to interact with the outdoors. So much of modern family life is adult-directed, structured activities. Childhood has changed, but children haven’t. The important work of childhood is PLAY.
