Tuleyome will host its second annual Spring Thing, a nature-centered celebration, on Saturday, March 18 from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. at the Woodland Regional Park Preserve located in Woodland. This event is a time to celebrate and support Tuleyome’s programs and access to public lands.
This free, family-friendly community event will feature guided trails through the preserve, kid’s adventures from Nature’s Theater, nature sketching activities with local author Robin Carlson, and more. A dedicated “kid’s zone” will include games from the City of Woodland’s Rec2Go program, face painting, crafts, and fort building. Live music from various artists will be provided throughout the day as well as two campfire events with s’mores and campfire activities.
Everyone is invited to bring their favorite snacks, a water bottle, a picnic, and a chair and come enjoy the start of spring in our beautiful preserve located just on the edge of town. This unique urban preserve is a special gem in our community and the Tuleyome Spring Thing is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy all it has to offer — all while supporting Tuleyome’s mission to enhance, restore, and conserve our deep home place.
“I am a volunteer board member for Tuleyome because they are the most effective preservation organization in our region. I want my kids, and their kids to have access to wild places, and Tuleyome makes that happen. Tuleyome also approaches Nature connection from a hands-on, political, educational, and immersive perspective,” said Lyndsay Dawkins, Founder and CEO of Nature’s Theater. “My organization, Nature’s Theater, has reached thousands of kids with eco-themed Theater over the years in partnership with Tuleyome. Kids care about what they’re connected to, so these experiences are golden. The Spring Thing will offer a peak into an urban jewel, the soon-to-open Woodland Regional Park Preserve. Its very existence was made possible because of Tuleyome’s vision and collaboration with others. Families will find nature fun on March 18th. This event is a perfect way to deepen the nature connection for kids.”
