Fall fun for the family at Penn State Abington on Nov. 1

Penn State Abington is teaming up with Briar Bush Nature Center to offer the community an afternoon of educational fun at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, in the Athletic Building on the Abington campus. Join Kristen Facente, director of public programs at Briar Bush Nature Center, as she discusses the "nature" of Pennsylvania.

"(Participants will) discover Lenape Native American life and children's games where families can see and handle artifacts and actually play some games," said Facente. "(They will) learn how to tell a tree's age from tree rings or cookies, see and touch live animals, and even make a bird nesting-material craft to take home to your feathered friends in the backyard. Experience the gifts of nature."

Activities and crafts are suited for children in grades two through six. Admission is free, but space is limited. To register, call 215-881-7376.
