The place to be for outdoor fun and nature is North Bend State Park. Activities on this Tuesday include:

12:00 p.m.– Warts and All -There’s more to toads and frogs than warts. Find out how much when you come participate in this educational program about the famous amphibians and their fascinating adaptations. We’ll check out the River Run Campground Pond for local residents and maybe catch a few to get an up close look. We will meet at the Nature Center (1 hour) YPP

2:00 p.m. – Venom and Poison – Leaves of three, let it be. This is a great way to remember not to touch poison ivy, but what about all those other poisonous plants and venomous animals you may encounter while in the forests of North Bend? Learn all about what to avoid in the woods and how to identify those species that might make you sick or uncomfortable. This program is designed to educate and not intimidate, so there is nothing to be afraid of. We will meet in the Nature Center. (1 hour) YPP

4:00 p.m. – Duct Tape Wallets – Need someplace to keep your loot? Come join your crafty cohorts and make yourself a duct tape wallet. A fun and simple craft for kids of all ages and all skill levels. Take a break from the heat and get crafty! We will meet in the Nature Center. (1 hour) YPP

6:00 p.m.– Orienteering – For centuries, compasses were used to find the right path. Sailors, explorers, and adventurers all use them to point them back home. If you want to learn how to use one too, come to this interesting program. The next time you venture into the woods you can be sure to know how to get back to camp. We will meet at the Nature Center. (1 hour) YPP

8:00 p.m.– All About Trees – Explore the common trees of North Bend and learn how to identify them and the important role they serve in the ecosystem.
