Local families with young children are welcome to join A Child's Nature families and teachers for a simple shared meal of vegetable soup and home-made buns,  and then experience our Fall Lantern Walk together outdoors.  This celebration brings light into the coming darkness of winter.  Children, parents and teachers walk along a candle-lit path out in the night, singing and carrying lanterns that the children have made.  This event is free.   Meet us at the Bluebell Cottage.

  “I walk with my little lantern, My lantern, myself, and I. 
Up yonder bright little stars shine; Down here we're stars for the sky . . .”
