WRN Kids – Shelter Building

WRN Kids – Shelter Building

Since another mild spell melted almost all the snow, WRN Kids didn't get to go snowshoeing on Saturday, January 27, 2018. Instead they got busy designing and building shelters. 

Shelter Building Instructions

Pairs of families worked together to build a shelter using only a tarp, a rope and dead branches and plant material.

After testing how warm their shelter could get when occupied, they headed back to the nature centre to feed chickadees from their hands.
