Enjoy the outdoors at the Nature + Art Walks
Spend time with your family in the great outdoors during four different Nature + Art Walks coordinated by Springville Center for the Arts. These walks are great for children ages 5 to 12 and are designed for parents, guardians, grandparents, and older siblings to walk with the designated participant. The cost is $5 per student, per session.
Each session, with a different guide at a different location each time, pairs a simple art activity with the surrounding natural beauty.
The first Nature + Art Walk will be held noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 8. This walk will be at the Olmsted Camp led by Lia Oprea.
Start with your picnic lunch at this peaceful setting listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Hike down to Cattaraugus Creek for tubing and swimming or to collect clay for body art or sculptures.
Participants should meet at the end of Benton Road, Sardinia.
The second Nature + Art Walk will be held 10 a.m.
to noon Saturday, July 15.
This walk, entitled Genesee Road Adventure, will be led by Mary Carol Dearing and George Klemens. Kids participate in an educational scavenger hunt at a private site, collecting things along the way and identifying and sketching natural points of interest (i.e. tree cut by a beaver). Finish by planting a tree and eating your picnic lunch. Participants should meet at 6511 Genesee Road.
