Sponsored by the Friends of Sherwood Island.   We had a BEAUTIFUL day for the Nature Center's 10th Birthday celebration Saturday. The Friends of Sherwood Island, who collected funds and lobbied and pushed for the creation of the Nature Center were excited to host a Birthday Party at the Nature Center this Saturday afternoon. The guests - the focus of our celebration - were the children who come to the Park and enjoy the Nature Center during the summer season when the Park and Nature Center are at their finest. Their parents were greeted by our NEW electronic sign:     So in honor of the kids: We had KITES, KITES and more KITES       .  --Kids made their own BIRD FEEDERS       --and they blew giant BUBBLES   --and painted SHELLS       --And played CORNHOLE and DISC GOLF W   --And had free CUPCAKES, POPCORN, and ICEYs   --AND they were able to actually plant a seed (nasturtium) into its own cup of dirt to take home and grow themselves.      .    --AND, most of all, learned about nature--both inside the Nature Center,     and outside, underneath the Park's huge Cottonwood tree, with a wild and wonderful "Birds of Prey" demonstration from Earthplace's Sammi Riccio.    .  .   .      .  .   .    THANKS to Sherwood Island's staff and families for their expertise and help!       All in all, a WONDERFUL DAY in the Westport Neighborhood!
