Before we fully embrace spring and bask in these longer days, let’s take a moment to look back on the magical winter season we enjoyed at Weekend Nature Play. From enjoying cozy fires to learning about local plants and animals, we welcomed thousands of visitors into the Children’s Garden.  We created opportunities for communities to come together, connect with nature, be curious, and engage in some risky play! We are so grateful for your support in ensuring that Evergreen Brick Works is bursting with life and we’re looking forward to the rest of the year. 


Shoutout to our talented outdoor educators for facilitating this incredible programming in the Children’s Garden every weekend and to our dedicated volunteers – we appreciate you!
