River Bend Nature Center in Faribault will again offer Women in Nature programs to build on women's outdoor skills from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday (March 14), at the center.

The March WIN program topic will be on maple syruping led by Diana and Dave Hering. Participants can learn about the history of maple syruping, go out into the sugar bush and tap some trees, and see how tree sap becomes maple syrup. River Bend will also have separate activities for children ages 5 to 12 years during the times of the class.

Pre-registration is required for this program. Register in person or by phone at (507) 332-7151, or online at http://shop.rbnc.org/win/. The program fee is $5 per person or $3 for River Bend members.

April’s program on April 11 will be on seed starting and hydroponic gardening. Future programs could include fishing, rock climbing, campfire building and cooking, campcraft and overnight camping trip, archery, nature writing, and hunter education and fire arms safety.

All programs are geared towards beginner to intermediate skill levels.
