September 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020 @ For the Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz, we utilize the iNaturalist platform. Download the app on a smart device and use it to take pictures during the event.
What’s a BioBlitz? The Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz is an event where community members work with park staff to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife that can be found in city parks during September. Using an app called iNaturalist, participants take pictures of plants, insects, and animals to see what wildlife is present in the parks in September and provide the community with more information about pollinators, which are essential to our ecosystem.
This information will help us understand how we can better protect pollinators and other important wildlife in our community.

Nurture your child's inner musician with Music
Together, an internationally renowned early childhood
music and movement program developed for children
ages 0-5 and the grown-ups who love them. During
this 10-week session of weekly classes, we sing,
dance, chant, and play instruments in an informal
setting with this research-based curriculum. Children
learn through play with a wide variety of music that
will enrich their musical environment and guide them
towards a lifetime of music-making enjoyment. They
(and you!) will have so much fun with the multicultural
music collections while obtaining all the learning,
and developmental benefits music offers - especially
during the early childhood years when children are
most impressionable. Our class sizes will be smaller (8 students maximum per class), and we will be more spread out to have each family 6 feet apart. We
will also take time between classes to allow a thorough sanitizing of every instrument/prop, surfaces, etc.

Neuroscientists recommend playing Mah Jongg (a complex thinking game) to improve memory. Psychologists deem it's low-cost therapy; players call it fun! A tile-based, 4-player game created for the ruling class during the time of Confucius in China, Mah Jongg has now spread worldwide. The object of the game is to collect winning sets of tiles. The tiles have characters and numbers, and the rules are intriguing. Instructor Melinda Colwell teaches the modernized and westernized version in this 6-week class. NOTE: Each participants will be required to have their own Mah Jongg set (borrow a frend's or buy your own; the Senior Center can also assist in ordering a set for you). Class is limited to 8 players. Sign up online or at the Senior Center.
