For the second year in a row, WOW has participated in Woodlawn’s awesome STEAMfest. STEAMfest (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) aims to pique the interest of young folks and encourage curiosity and exploration. We loved being part of this event in person last year, and we were thrilled to be asked back for the virtual event in 2021. And the best part – because it’s virtual, you can check out the STEAMfest website any time for cool ideas for fun things to do with the kids.

In keeping with WOW’s nature-focused mission, we created two activities that will get families outside! First, we have a pinecone winter birdfeeder activity. Watch the video to create your own simple, bird-friendly feeder sure to keep hungry birds satisfied during the lean winter months.

Our second activity aims to get families outside and in the woods! Worried that winter is no time for an interesting hike? Join WOW volunteer and master naturalist, Alice Sudduth, as she points out all kinds of winter wonders on a simple walk in the woods. Be sure to check out the included list of local places to visit for brisk winter walks.

Late winter and early spring can start to feel a bit dreary and wet, but if you put on your boots or old shoes and head outdoors, you’re sure to experience something WOWnderful!
