The end of the school year is near and if you're like me when my daughter was young, you're too busy to research and find exciting constructive things for your kids to do to fill their time this summer.

Parents who homeschool their children are invited to take part in an excellent educational opportunity that's provided by the Hartley Nature Center.

The first of those classes is happening September 19.
Halloween comes early - this Saturday - at the Hartley Nature Center. Bring the kids and explore the haunted trails of Hartley Park and the Hartley Nature Center. Their annual Howl-O-Ween will include two sessions this year.
