Naturalist Presentations at Russell Crossroads
Although live presentations at the Naturalist Cabin have been put on hold, you can still join our Naturalist Marianne around 7am daily as she posts a “Nature Note” to the Naturalist Marianne Facebook page. We’re sharing it on the Russell Lands On Lake Martin Facebook page, too.
These are short, daily tidbits that parents can start the day giving their kids for a look about the natural world. She is doing this with either photos or videos and often includes a link for “extended activity.” According to Marianne, “this is intended as a brief science lesson appropriate across multiple age groups.”
Stay up-to-date on local businesses’ adjustments by visiting their Facebook pages.
