Homeschool students/families are invited to join Severson Dells Nature Center for a variety of lessons throughout the 2019-2020 school year. This is a great opportunity to get your homeschooler(s) involved in hands-on, minds-on environmental education throughout the year. All lessons are at least partly outdoors, and most are entirely outside, so be sure everyone is dressed for the weather (closed-toe shoes required). For students ages 8 years and older.November 21: Outdoor Skills I: Cordage – nettles are a plant we normally avoid, but this bothersome summer plant is beneficial to people in many other ways. We’ll learn how to harvest and dry the stalks, how to remove the fibers, and how to make cordage that can be used in a variety of outdoor projects. This will be a challenge for manual dexterity!
