The Scouts lend a hand: a generous donation to the center

The Ameal Moore Nature Center is always happy when residents of Riverside and visitors from other cities are interested in helping us in our mission to educate.  Recently the center was the proud recipient of a generous donation of time and energy by a very industrious Eagle Scout.  Tyler is a local scout who generously asked the nature center if we would be the focus of his Eagle Scout project.  After listening to the center’s needs, Tyler suggested a custom made sensory table that could be used for discovery learning and sensory play by visitors of all ages.  Tyler’s thoughtfulness resulted in not one, but two sensory tables.  Each table meets the nature center’s needs of being multipurpose, mobile, and small.  Tyler also provided sand for the tables as well as animal track stamps, books, and cards.  The center is looking forward to using the tables in the future for various education events (such as tracking and archaeology) and as daily additions to our learning collection.
