The Washington County Department of Parks and Recreation is offering a "Mantis Mania" Homeschool Outdoor Classroom at Mingo Creek County Park on Thursday, September 11 at Shelter 4. Two sessions are available: Session I will begin at 10 a.m. and Session II will begin at 1 p.m.
Join us as we investigate insects, as well as learn about a very unique one: the praying mantis! We'll be playing field games, searching for praying mantises and their egg sacks, and with a little luck, observing a live specimen or two.
Please note that this program is designed for homeschooled children ages 5 to 11. Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling the Washington County Department of Parks and Recreation office at 724-228-6867. There is no fee for this program.
Mingo Creek Park is located 12 miles east of Washington, PA off of Route 136.
