30th Anniversary Block Party!

The Wynn Nature Center staff spent a lot of time kidding around at the 30th Anniversary Block Party last Saturday.  Naturalists Adriana, Ali, and Lindsey brought kid's activities to the shin-dig to celebrate thirty successful years of Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies outdoor education efforts.  Despite a very cool July temperature, blustery wind, and even some sprinkling rain we had a great time providing activities for kids and adults alike.  The party also included wine from Bear Creek Winery (with a  special Alaskan Coastal Studies label), delicious food from Two Sisters Bakery (and from party-goers), a judged pie contest, and some hoppin' music from Burnt Down House.  But, as one of the Naturalists running the kid's activity booth, I wager that the most creative fun was being had at the face-painting table!  Check out these pictures for proof!
