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!
