Event Details

The Bennett Spring nature center will hold a monthly program that will include a 20-minute discussion on a natural or cultural topic followed by a quilting lesson by volunteer Karen Jaegers. Each month will be a different topic with tips and tricks shared to help others.

The program will take place at 11 a.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month from March through October.

The quilt resulting from the monthly program will be on display in the nature center from Feb. 23 to Opening Day, March 1 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
