PORTVILLE, NY — For families looking for ways to engage children in outdoor activities, Pfeiffer Nature Center has created Seasonal Activity Kits for Kids.

The kits contain seasonally themed activities, including scavenger hunts, activity sheets and crafts, and can be done at the nature center properties as well as at home, according to a news release by Nature Program Coordinator Beverly Jones.

Pfeiffer plans to develop a new kit each season so people can enjoy special adventures at its properties year round. The fall 2020 activity kit features an outdoor explore at the Lillibridge property, 1974 Lillibridge Road. The center's other property is called Eshelman and is located at 1420 Yubadam Road.

Kits can be reserved Nov. 6 by emailing naturalist@pfeiffernaturecenter.org  or by calling the office at 716-933-0187. Callers should leave contact phone numbers and the number of kits requested. Kits will be made available for pick up Nov. 9 through Nov. 20.

Pfeiffer will contact persons who make reservations to confirm them and share pickup times and location.

Kits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be handled following prescribed COVID-19 regulations. The fall kit will be offered free of charge.

All kits will be offered in limited numbers and prices per season will vary.

Because kits are created for children to keep, returning of materials will not be accepted. 

Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way.
