April, 2020
First of all, we hope this month's newsletter finds everyone safe and healthy. We would also like to give a huge Shout Out to any First Responders, Medical Personnel, Law Enforcement and other Essential Workers who may be reading this. THANK YOU for everything you are doing!

While we miss the kids being out at the park for field trips and events, we know that the country will overcome today's challenges and we will be back to teaching the joys of the outdoors soon. In the meantime, however, our Education Staff has been hard at work putting together videos for our new "Deerassic at Home" program. Please see the link below to access these learn at home tools.

Due to current government guidelines we have had to cancel and/or postpone some of our events that were originally scheduled to take place in April. Please note that the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Youth Turkey Hunt have been cancelled. Also, we were hoping to show off the new Education Center at the Faith, Woods & The Outdoors Dinner. Unfortunately, we have had to postpone this event as well and hope to reschedule it for sometime this fall.

Please enjoy this month's newsletter, stay safe and wash your hands.
