Lewisburg Children’s Museum offers W.O.W. outdoor Programs

posted: October 6, 2020

The Lewisburg Children’s Museum (LCM) is pleased to offer a series of outdoor workshops as part of its Museum W.O.W. (Museum WithOut Walls) programming. These outdoor programs get children and families exploring nature and other creative pursuits, while giving children a place to safely learn, imagine, and play.

“Learning doesn’t just happen indoors,” says Lindsey Walter, LCM Education Director. “By offering programming beyond our four walls, we hope to get children excited about discovery, as well as give families a peace of mind, as many families feel safer outside right now due to COVID-19.”

Museum WOW programs include: a Stream Study at the Dale Engle Walker House in partnership with the Union County Historical Society and the Union County Conservation District; an introduction to biology with an Owl Pellet Dissection in partnership with the Montour Area Recreation Commission; and a Nature Photography workshop led by a local university professor. An introductory American Sign Language workshop for families is also being developed for the beginning of November. For the convenience of families, many of these programs have a drop off option available.

“’What the hand does, the mind remembers,’” adds Lynn Fiedler, LCM Advisory Board Member and WOW Program Facilitator. “Where better to experience valuable hands on learning than in an outdoor, natural classroom setting. In these programs, your children will actually DISSECT the owl pellets, COLLECT the stream samples, SHOOT the photos, and SIGN the language.  Active engagement is what these programs offer, and it is how children truly learn.”

Upcoming programs require registration as space is limited:

  • Stream Study, October 10 at 10:00 am-11:30 am at the Dale Engle Walker House (1471 Strawbridge Rd, Lewisburg, PA)
