Snowflake Beauties Craft, Monday, Dec. 26 & Wednesday, Dec.28, 2016, 11am-12pm

December 18, 2016

Did you know that no two snowflakes are alike? Both Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) and Wilson Bentley (1865-1931) loved to observe snowflakes! “Snowflake Bentley,” as Wilson was called, was even the first person to photograph them! Come celebrate these “six-rayed snowy stars” by joining park staff in some snowflake making. This activity will be held inside the new Walden Pond Visitor Center. The program is good for all ages.

Thissnowflake bentley 4.jpg is a free program, but there is an $8 parking fee for MA plates, $10 out-of-state. All children must be accompanied by and adult. No pets, only working guides. For more information at (978) 369-3254. Reasonable accommodations upon request.
