CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center invites all to attend the Families in Nature event on Saturday, June 7. According to Education Consultant Bridget Jackson, the center has made adjustments to the day’s scheduled events.

“Instead of families coming for an all-day event, as we stated in our newsletter, we will have a morning session and an afternoon session,” Jackson said.

The morning session is scheduled for 8:30 until noon and the afternoon session will be from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jackson said both sessions will include archery, fishing, and canoeing activities.

“We strive to equip families with the knowledge and skill so that they can continue to discover nature together for generations to come,” Jackson said. “For many families, this event will be the first step toward that legacy.”

Registration is required and begins May 15. Jackson said sessions are limited to 30 people each and reservations will be made on a first come, first served basis. Call the Nature Center at (573)290-5218 to register. For information on other Nature Center programs go online to
