Woodsy Owl is the USDA Forest Service’s conservation symbol whose motto is, “Lend a hand, care for the land!”. These nature education programs are designed for children ages 4 to 7 with an accompanying caregiver. Programs run weekly on Wednesday and Thursdays between June 12 and August 8. Programs are from 10:30am to 12:00pm and invite children to explore the nature world with their trusted caregiver and the guidance of a Cradle naturalist. Come to one or all eight programs, great for families vacationing in the Blue Ridge mountains this summer! 

Program Info:

  • Each Wednesday or Thursday an outdoor-oriented activity explores a different forest related theme. Designed to engage 4-7 year olds in the natural world around them, programs include reading a story, activities, games, and a craft. 
  • Thursdays are perfect for parents who have multiple children old enough for Woodsy and Junior Forester (for ages 8 to 12) programs. 
  • Blends investigation and creativity. The program starts in our Forest Discovery classroom and heads outside for investigation and play. 
  • Each child leaves with the colorful book, Woodsy’s ABCs, a Woodsy pin and a craft they create; repeat children receive other Woodsy giveaways. 
  • All children must be accompanied by an adult. The program costs $5 per child and $3 for accompanying adults. Accompanying adults are free with a Friends of the Cradle Season Pass, America the Beautiful Senior passes, and Golden Age Passports.
