Black Friday in Nature
What did you do this Black Friday? Hopefully the valuable holiday time was spent with family, friends and doing something you enjoy. For those who enjoy the outdoors, TLC offered a special Black Friday Celebration program at the Bucktoe Creek Preserve. Our group took off for a morning hike through the meadows and woodlands collecting pine cones, twigs, small vines, milkweed pods and anything else that could be molded into a natural decoration.
There were beautiful creations such as, stars made out of sticks, wreaths made from a pine needles and a collection of other materials (pictured below), mantel pieces and sparkling pine cones. TLC sends a big thank you to all of the participants who enjoyed the beautiful morning on the preserve.
TLC will be decorating our evergreen with these ornaments atop Crossfield Hill at our Stateline Woods Preserve for the Winter Solstice Celebration on Saturday, December 21st from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Refreshments and a bonfire will provide a warm atmosphere to gather with friends and family to listen of winter time stories with our special guest. Please click here to register!
