St. Patty's PJ Party at Dickinson County Nature Center March 16 

The Dickinson County Nature Center is holding a free family event on Friday evening.

Environmental Education Coordinator Bryanna Kuhlman says children are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the St. Patty's PJ Party.  "We're going to start out by reading the book 'Green', and it's about all things green.  It's just a real simple book, and we're going to be doing a felt board exercise about putting the things in the book on a green felt board, and then after we finish the story, I'm going to bring out some of our favorite live green creatures, so frogs, turtles, just for the kids to get a hands on and see some live things, and then we'll probably talk about other green things, and then after we do the talking and the book and felt board activity, we are going to go downstairs and make some green slime."

She adds that the event is free, however pre-registration is encouraged.  "It's requested but not necessarily needed, it will just be a little easier to get supplies, but definitely not needed, we just want the community to come out."

The event is aimed at children ages 3-10 and will begin at 6:30 on Friday evening.
